Panel Discussion: When Words Are Not Enough - The University of Washington and the Black Panther Party

Thursday, April 24, 2008, 7:00 - 8:30 PM
Free, tickets available at the Henry Art Gallery admissions desk starting April 17.

During the height of the Civil Rights movement, from 1967 to 1973, photographer Stephen Shames had unprecedented access to the Black Panther Party and captured not only its public face but also unscripted behind-the-scenes moments. Shames’s work offers an uncommonly nuanced portrait of this dynamic social movement, during one of the most tumultuous periods in U.S. history. An exhibit is on view at Odegaard Library to coincide with the 40th anniversary of the student takeover of the administration building at the University of Washington. Panelists include Larry Gossett, James Gregory, Janet Jones, and Aaron Dixon.
