Co-presented with the WASHINGTON CENTER FOR THE BOOK AT THE SEATTLE PUBLIC LIBRARY. Published this past autumn, Seattle (lifelong) activist Aaron Dixon's extraordinary memoir of Black Panther days in Seattle—and life and causes along the way—My People Are Rising: Memoir of a Black Panther Party Captain (Haymarket), has been going into many readers' hands. This is a vital, necessary story. "Dixon's lyrical prose provides a candid appraisal of the Black Panther Party that highlights the neglected contributions of Northwest activists. This is a striking blend of social history, memoir, and political analysis. Requires reading for all those interested in Black liberation struggles and radical history of the twentieth century." – Laura Chrisman, University of Washington. Free admission is on a first-come, first-serve basis. The Seattle Public Library is at 1000 Fourth Avenue (between Madison & Spring).
