All Power: Visual Legacies Of The Black Panther Party says
Our final evening program for 2016 is one of timeliness and perspective, history and the urgent present, as editors and artists involved with the making of the striking book, All Power: Visual Legacies of the Black Panther Party are on hand for this evening of talk and book-signing. Published by Seattle’s intrepid photography/art press, Minor Matters Books, local contributors to this book of text and imagery will talk of the Black Panthers’ often little-known past, and its impacts and importance for today. There has been a welcome surge of recent books addressing the Panthers who began fifty years ago, to go with other landmark titles such as Seattle Black Panther Aaron Dixon’s My People Are Rising and the role of the Panthers across the board here in Seattle, as evidenced in the book, Gang of Four, featuring the part of Larry Gossett. Expected to be here are editor Michelle Dunn Marsh, co-editor Negarra A. Kudumu, artist/curator/filmmaker Maikoiyo Alley-Barnes, painter/graphic designer Yadesa Bojia, and photographer Robert Wade, with others possibly on-hand. The book includes work from others around the country such as Carrie Mae Weems, Hank Willis Thomas, Deborah Willis, Paul Rucker (who is here in Seattle), and Kambui Olujimi. A strong way to end a hard year.
