Public Opening Reception
Roots of Resistance is a student-powered archives project about the Black Panther Party’s free food program for social change. Students from nearby Lincoln University, the first degree granting historically black college, shared a collection of photographs and articles from the Black Panther Party newsletters – archived at Lincoln – centering work on food justice. Students contributed family recipes and traditions as well, contextualizing and amplifying their research by weaving in their own personal histories.
