NYU presents

Black Panthers Worldwide Revisited

Friday, Nov 30th, 2012, 6pm   

An international symposium on the influence of the revolutionary and liberation movement of Black Panthers
in the 1960s/1970s in the USA
Free and Open to the Public
The Institute of African American Affairs presents a roundtable reunion of Panthers from America, India, Israel, UK, and Australia will primarily be focused on the experiences of the members of their respective movements. The participants will explain why they formed a Panther Party and what was their inspiration, among other things. The idea is to provide students, scholars and the general audience with an opportunity to be exposed to an international oral history, archives, and memories that are not widely known and associated with the history of the Black Panthers in America.  Additionally, the roundtable will also explore the links between the struggle for justice then and now.
