Sisters: Women in the Black Panther Party

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

For many the Black Panther Party conjures up an image of macho men with guns, but in fact at its peak the party's membership was two-thirds female and women played essential leadership roles. We have much to learn from these inspiring women in our struggles today.

Recommended Books Available in the Haymarket Room:
The Black Panthers Speak edited by Philip Foner
Assata: An Autobiography by Assata Shakur and Angela Davis
The Black Panther Party [Reconsidered] by Charles E. Jones
