The Spring Colloquium will explore the history and politics of the Black Panther Party. An open forum panel discussion will explore the trajectory of the Black Panther Party to present-day social/political activism.
After the first part (the 3 p.m. panel presentation, see Calendar), the second part will consist of a participatory workshop where the speakers will introduce the anti-carceral movement and political prisoner initiative. In this workshop, speakers will share stories of political prisoners around the world, as well as their personal experiences in prison. Speakers and workshop participants also will engage with community development initiatives created nationally to assist political prisoners who have been released from prison. The second part of the program has limited seats, so it will be on a first-come basis.
The event is sponsored by a Humanities New York Grant, SUNY Oswego’s Public Justice - David F. Cutler ’74 Fund for Excellence, SUNY Oswego’s CLAS Dean’s Office, SUNY Oswego’s women and gender studies, Syracuse Peace Council and the ArtRage Gallery in Syracuse.
