"We are delighted to be on hand for what should be a special Sunday afternoon program, as Ericka Huggins, one of the early leaders of the Black Panther Party, an activist then and ever since, visits along with photographer Stephen Shames to present their extraordinary book, Comrade Sisters: Women of the Black Panther Party (ACC Art Books). Comprised of photographs stunning in scope and range, taken by Stephen Shames, who at the time was a twenty-year-old student in Berkeley, and text by Ericka Huggins, this book gives us women who did play a central role in what the Black Panther Party was at its inception and has continued to be in idealized ways since. Ericka Huggins’ dedication to social justice led her to be involved with the Panthers for fourteen years, to serve as director of the renowned Oakland Community School, and to go to prison for her beliefs and actions. Angela Davis has a foreword here, and Alicia Garza the afterword. What words there are here, what images." (Promo Copy)
