Membership Brunch
October 7, 2017 at 10:00AM-12:00PM
Bobby Seale Keynote Speaker


Taking to the stage with his lively charismatic and activist eloquence Mr. Seale illuminates the true sixties birth and youthful intelligentsia of the BPP. Unfolding the pragmatic unknown philosophical range of the sixties protest movement, which grew out of student activism, historical class analysis, scientific research, and programmatic grass-roots community organizing. NOT street life hooliganism as COINTELPRO political conservatism continues to distort.

Today our right to self-defense stance is unheard of. Defining himself as “revolutionary humanist” Seale brings the BPP/Sixties protest movement era full circle showing how times have changed. How we must reach for the future: Demonstrate, Protest, organize real peoples’ programs and evolve a greater direct [participatory] community control democracy, void of racist, bigoted or chauvinistic practices. Understanding how all civil-human rights issues today are interconnected, intertwined, interdependent, and interrelated with ecological environmental problems, new-millennium political issues, and global economics.
