Through conversations with the women of the Black Panther Party Mural and the #SayHerName movement, the Dr. Huey P. Newton Foundation, sculptor Dana King, Susan Cervantes, muralist and founder of Precita Eyes, artist Catherine Wagner, the artists, organizers, and activists of the collective See Black Womxn and artist Lava Thomas, we explore how these accomplished individuals usher in diverse representation and change the Bay Area's landscape.
