Black Power Staff Pick

When: Ongoing
Price: Admission
What better way to begin Black History Month than by remembering the largest of many contributions that Oakland has made to the black liberation project: The Black Panthers. Though the Oakland Museum of California has had All Power to the People: Black Panthers at 50 installed since 2016, the sister installation, Black Power can serve as a reminder of the effectiveness and impact the Panthers’ tactics and programs, while uncovering a criminally overlooked part of American history. Not shying from controversy or critique, Black Power focuses on the example of the Black Panther Party and highlights the tensions between a supposed culturally and socially progressive California and contrasts it with examples of economic racism, anti-Black legislation, and oppression within the state.
