Your Call: What is revolutionary today?

Nov 4, 2014

  

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.

Bobby Seale, civil rights and political activist and best known for co-founding the Black Panther Party with Huey Newton.

Steven Sapp,co-creator of Party People and performer and co-founder of UNIVERSES, a National / International ensemble Company of multi-disciplined writers and performers who fuse Poetry, Theater, music, Politics, to create moving, challenging and entertaining theatrical works
