The Black Panther Party Mural
the west oakland MURAL PROJECT
The Women of the Black Panther Party Mural is a 2000sqft public art masterpiece, installed on a private home in the heart of West Oakland, Ca. This historic dedication to the women of the BPP marks the first time in history that the work these women did to protect and better the lives of Black, poor and oppressed communities across the world is being recognized.
Although The Mural was not complete, we hosted an event on Jilchristina 21st anniversary of buying the house. We added names to the wall, Rachel painted live and on the spot, we created community, spoke history, we cried, laughed, and kept 6 ft from one another. We started the journey of changing the narrative around The Black Panther Party and gave away nearly 300 bags of groceries.
