Black Panther 50th Anniversary Exhibition

(Saturday) (Sunday)

In the fall of 2016, the Oakland Museum of California (OMCA) will present a major exhibition to coincide with the 50th anniversary the Black Panther Party’s founding on October 15, 1966, in Oakland. Presenting a contemporary view of the Black Panther Party’s legacy from multiple perspectives, the Black Panther 50th Anniversary Exhibition* will show how the Party continues to inspire culture, social activism and community empowerment efforts locally, nationally, and internationally. Designed to create empathy and emotional resonance, the exhibition explores the Black Panther Party as a necessary, heroic, and human response to societal needs. Informed by insights from former Black Panthers, artists, scholars, and community members, the exhibition will include gallery displays of art, artifacts, and material culture, including contemporary works of art.
