Fredrika Newton in conversation with DJ scholar Lynnee Denise on love, survival, and healing. Ms. Newton is the thought partner and widow of Dr. Huey P. Newton, one of the most influential revolutionaries of the 20th century. The conversation touched on her challenges, her healing, and her triumphs as a complex human being living within her own unique circumstances.

The conversation opened with a musical essay and archival slideshow curated by DJ Lynnée Denise, archivist Lisbet Tellefsen, and MATATU art director Julie Munsayac.

This program was presented in collaboration with the de Young Museum and the Dr. Huey P. Newton Foundation in support of  Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power 1963–1983.
