Capstone Project (Open Access)

This creative project is a magazine which focuses on and highlights the politics and contributions of the Black Panther Party to the Black Liberation Movement in Oakland. The magazine is titled “Black Panther” as a homage to the Panthers’ newspaper that published 537 issues during the time they were active. Divided into five sections, the magazine includes the political profiles of Panther leaders in Oakland, a walking photo tour of significant and historical sites related to the Black Panther chapter in Oakland, a dissection of the anti-imperialist and Black Marxist theories practiced by the Panthers, a highlight of the Panthers’ part in healthcare and outreach in Black communities, and a magnified look at gentrification in historically Black Oakland communities. All photos were taken by the author on a 35mm Canon AE-1 to mirror the aesthetic of the times.
