50 years ago this month, the Black Panther Party dedicated a school to the community. The school welcomed children of non-black panther party members. It was the beginning of what would become an award-winning educational institution.
Last year, Comrade Sisters: Women of the black panther party was published, containing photos and oral histories. In honor of the 50th anniversary of the school’s opening to the community, we would like to elevate the stories of the women who worked at The Oakland Community School.
You can find their reflections in the book, Comrade Sisters: Women of the Black Panther Party for a special 40% savings in the shop.
