Conversation with Ericka Huggins and Savannah Shange

On Sunday, February 9th, join Bryant at Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD) for a conversation with Ericka Huggins as they discuss the lasting impact of the Black Panther Party's survival programs, including Free Breakfast for Children and the Oakland Community School's program of empowerment for Black and poor children. With a focus on nurturing the whole child, the Oakland Community School valued nutrition and healthy food practices. Bryant's food activism was inspired by the work of Ericka Huggins and the Black Panther Party, while Ericka Huggins has followed the work of Bryant as he revolutionizes vegan cuisine and its roots in the African Diaspora. University of California Santa Cruz Professor of Anthropology Savannah Shange will moderate the conversation between these two Oakland leaders in food and health justice.  A reception and Vegetable Kingdom signing will follow. More information soon.
