This year marks the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense. To commemorate the milestone, the Central Library's ALOUD lecture series hosts a panel discussion on the new book The Black Panthers: Portraits From an Unfinished Revolution, featuring its co-editor, photojournalist Bryan Shih, as well as former Black Panthers Ericka Huggins, Phyllis Jackson and Norma Mtume and Melina Abdullah, organizer of the L.A. chapter of the Black Lives Matter movement. Co-edited by historian Yohuru Williams, the anthology focuses less on the militant black organization's famous leaders Huey P. Newton and Bobby Seale and more on its little-known members, including women and Asian-Americans, and features 45 interviews paired with images by Shih, as well as essays by scholars.
