Temescal Roots Project

The Black Panthers in Temescal: Tracing the Roots of a Movement

The evolution of our city is founded on a legacy that will always keep us rooted. The Temescal Business Improvement District and the Dr. Huey P. Newton Foundation have teamed up with Made in Color to envision a community art piece that pays tribute to the history of the Black Panther Party. This outdoor art installation will pull inspiration from the Oakland community of today, bringing in the imagination and expertise of local artists, culture keepers, and residents. Join us over the next few months as we nurture a creative strategy that honors our roots.
