Weekend Passport: Black Panther History on Display at Stony Island Arts Bank
“The rise of the Black Panther Party was one of the most influential political and social movements of the 20th Century, and Chicago was a pivotal place in the movement’s formation,” said Tregg Duerson, COO of the Rebuild Foundation, which is hosting the exhibition ICONIC: Black Panther. On Today’s Weekend Passport segment, we are joined by the exhibit’s creator, Rosalind McGary,. She’s an artist, and founder of the SEPIA Collective, a Los Angeles-based organization that engages artists, builds community, and empowers youth. We’ll also hear from Chicago artists, David Anthony Geary and Candace Hunter. Their work is on display at ICONIC: Black Panther. Our global citizen, Nari Safavi, also joins us to give you a couple ideas to help you plan your international weekend!
