Now is your chance to learn more: The Black Panther Party-inspired Project Lead pop-up event with Bill Jennings is coming. This event is in honor of the late Bobby Bowens who was a member of the Black Panther Party, a tireless activist in the Richmond community and also a member of the RPA. His family will be invited to attend.

This event will include historical photos and memorabilia of the Black Panther Party from the collection of Billy X Jennings, Black Panther Party historian and archivist of “It’s About Time.” There will be refreshments, music and  in the spirit of the BPP, a care bag giveaway for homeless persons.
