Afro-Punk Festival:
Saturday, June 30–Saturday, July 28, 2007

BAMcinématek presents the third annual Afro-Punk Festival. Join legendary Black Panther Party co-founder Bobby Seale in person for a discussion about the history of the movement: where it’s been and where it’s going. Accompanying this discussion are two historic short films from 1969 by the Newsreel collective: May Day Panther, a documentary of the Free Huey rally in San Francisco, and Bobby Seale, an interview conducted during Seale’s imprisonment. The discussion will be followed by a book signing and art reception in the lobby featuring historic photographs by Stephen Shames, Black Panther-inspired work from students at Pratt, and more. Stephen Shames is the photographer of the recently published Aperture book, The Black Panthers.
