THE 9TH ANNUAL LIFE IS LIVING FESTIVAL
LEGACY: A TRIBUTE TO THE BLACK PANTHER PARTY
OAKLAND, CA – OCTOBER 8TH
This year marks the 9th Annual Life Is Living Festival in Oakland. Over the past 10 years, we have transformed deFremery Park (Little Bobby Hutton Park) from vacant to vibrant. We are indebted to the local West Oakland heroes and sheroes of The Black Panther Party for inspiring us to use culture as a vehicle for social change. That said, we are honored to pay tribute to the enduring legacy of The Black Panther Party at this year’s Festival.
Through efforts such as The Free Breakfast Program, we re-dedicate ourselves to sustaining the Panther’s revolutionary commitment to community generated solutions. From babies to grandparents, Life Is Living believes in intergenerational dialogue that honors the wisdom of children and elders. Our partners have been engaged in a year long process to envision, strategize and create a Festival that is inclusive, dynamic and democratic.
We hope you will join us on Saturday, October 8th for what is to be a beautiful day as we honor the 50 year legacy of the Black Panther Party.
