October 2017 marks the 51st anniversary of the founding of the Black Panther Party. Hip Hop TV is partnering with Stellium to host events commemorating the anniversary from October 13-14th in Oakland, California.

The theme of our commemoration is “Power To The People”. The Black Panther Party is well-known and admired in Oakland and around the world for its stand against police brutality, for its Survival Programs -  which included free breakfast for school children and free health clinics - its coalitions with other people of color, and its effort to bring about revolutionary change in America. The anniversary events will explore and celebrate the history and legacy of the Black Panther Party.

We hope you will join us in commemorating this historic 51st anniversary by joining us at our opening reception and conference at Merritt College on Fri, Oct 13th followed by an all day music celebration on Sat, Oct 14th where the Power to the People stage will be featured at Life is Living Festival at DeFremery Park.
