Witness local and nationwide history being made through the story of one man—Seattle Black Panther captain, Aaron Dixon—and the enduring legacy of Black Power.

The documentary “My People Are Rising” and short film “Sincerely, The Black Kids” are two portraits of black leadership—then and now. After watching the films, we will celebrate the impact of Seattle’s Black Panther Party on its 50th anniversary and explore the contemporary challenges black student leaders face today on mostly white college campuses.

Panelists include Seattle Black Panther chapter founder Aaron Dixon, moderator Tony Benton of Rainier Valley Radio, and local Black Student Union leaders. Ticket includes free entry to the Northwest African American Museum (NAAM) and its exhibit “Power to the People: Seattle Black Panther Party at 50.”
