Episode 2: The Black Panther Party & Revolution in Oakland

The second episode of the Making the Left Coast Podcast has just been released.

In it, I interview the amazing Donna Murch, author of the award-winning work, Living for the City: Migration, Education, and the Rise of the Black Panther Party in Oakland, California (University of North Carolina, 2010). We have a far-reaching discussion of the Panthers’ politics and their role in Oakland. We talk about their perspective on the state and other levels of political authority; their 1973 attempt to take over the Oakland city government and turn the city into a “base of operations,” the role of democracy in the party, and other fascinating topics.

You can find it on iTunes, Spotify, and here.
