The African American Museum & Library at Oakland (AAMLO) announces a public conversation on Saturday, August 17 ahead of the thirtieth anniversary of the death of the slain political icon, Dr. Huey P. Newton (February 17, 1942-August 22, 1989). The program—created collaboratively with the performative think tank, MATATU—will take place at AAMLO, 659 14th Street in downtown Oakland.

Together with Bobby Seale, Huey Newton co-founded the Black Panther Party for Self Defense in 1966 while a student at Merritt College in Oakland, California. He earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of California-Santa Cruz in 1974 and a Ph.D. in social philosophy in 1980. In August 1989 he was shot to death in West Oakland, in the very neighborhood where he began his outreach work with the Black Panther Party.
