Co-presented by Friends of the San Francisco Public Library 

In celebration of San Francisco's 13th Annual One City One Book selection, we present an evening with Black Against Empire: The History and Politics of the Black Panther Party, and its co-author, Waldo E. Martin, Jr. Bold, engrossing, and richly detailed, this book cuts through the mythology and obfuscation, revealing the political dynamics that drove the explosive growth of the revolutionary Black Panther Party, and its disastrous unraveling. Black against Empire is the winner of the American Book Award, and is currently banned by the CA Department of Corrections. In conversation with writer/curator D. Scot Miller. FREE
