Field Trip: Black Power to Black People

On August 30 at the Poster House Museum in New York City, join our founder, Kimberly Jenkins, for our first in-person event for FRD members. Together, you will tour the exhibition, ‘Black Power to Black People: Branding the Black Panther Party’ led by its curator, Poster House Education Coordinator (and past FRD contributor), Es-pranza Humphrey.

About ‘Black Power to Black People’:
“The posters in this exhibition chronicle how the Black Panther Party devised a specific graphic language to reaffirm Black humanity and decommodify Black life. Its heroic images of party members, widespread distribution of printed materials like The Black Panther newspaper, and political campaign posters allowed the Black Panther Party to control its own narrative and brand Black nationalism to advance a communal revolution.”
