Seattle Women Black Panthers Project seattlewomenpanthers.com
“Panther women became indispensable not only to the Black Panther Party but to the larger civil rights movement as well...they were “keepers of the dream.” *
The women of the Black Panther Party were instrumental to the success of the Party's survival programs such as the health centers and school breakfasts.
Yet, these women's stories have not been visible.
Now, our mostly People of Color team is documenting the stories of the Women of Color of the Seattle Black Panther movement.
"Keeper of the Dream: Frances Dixon" is the first documentary produced.
The stories of five more former Women Panthers are in production.
