On the November 4th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with the Black Panthers co-founder Bobby Seale, and the artistic director of Party People, a new play at Berkeley Rep. Party People reflects on the history of the Black Panther Party and the Young Lords, a Puerto Rican immigrant rights movement that called for independence. What can we learn from their radical histories? And what is considered a revolutionary act today? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
