Aaron Dixon: Memoirs of a Black Panther Party Captain

In an era of stark racial injustice and decisive action, Aaron Dixon dedicated his life to the struggle for change, founding the Seattle chapter of the Black Panther Party in 1968 at age nineteen. Dixon is on a Northeast tour speaking about his book, "My People Are Rising: a Memoir of a Black Panther Party Captain." Through his memoir that begins with the story of his enslaved ancestors and takes us on a journey throughout America - we see the courage of a generation, and the unforgettable legacy of Black Power.

“Aaron Dixon is a courageous, compassionate, and wise freedom fighter whose story of his pioneering work in the Black Panther Party is powerful and poignant. Don’t miss it!”
—Cornel West

As a political party we work to establish political action based on cooperation, rather than exploitation, on conservation rather than consumption, and on sustainability rather than short-term gain. We believe in an alternative, independent politics.
