A few weeks ago, while visiting Ithaca, NY, my partner and I found a copy of the Black Panther Party’s own words while browsing an antique store. On one of the magazine shelves stood an unassuming publication edited by the Black Panther Party. In 1974 they guest edited The CoEvolution Quarterly, a supplement to the Whole Earth Catalogue. After purchasing this for six dollars (!) I went home and poured over all of the amazing information about their programs and reflected on their work and how it informs my own personal and political commitments; specifically how we construct and take care of our communities.
