"SEIZING THE TIME"

Black Panthers in Oakland 1968

In his first solo exhibition, veteran photographer and longtime Oakland resident HENRY RAULSTON shares his insightful documentation of the Black Panthers at a Free Huey! rally at DeFremery Park, 1968; Survival Programs in East & West Oakland; and Black Arts Movement conjurers visiting Grove Street College, 1967.

These never-been-shown-before photos capture classic portraits of Black and Chicano liberation leaders, such as Bobby Seale, Stokely Carmichael (Kwame Ture), Eldridge Cleaver, Kathleen Cleaver, Leroi Jones (Amiri Baraka), Sonia Sanchez, Ed Bullins, Reies Lopez Tijerina, and the Black Panther & Brown Beret rank-and-file---all photographed right here in Oakland!
