1. DISCOVER MORE ABOUT THE WOMEN OF THE BLACK PANTHER PARTY.

2. SUPPORT POLITICAL PRISONERS AND THE ONGOING MOVEMENT FOR BLACK LIVES.

  • Help free incarcerated members of the Black Panther Party. Read about the 16 BPP members still behind bars and share their support websites. Connect with and support BPP political prisoners by writing letters on behalf of the Jericho Movement using these suggestions.
  • Order your copy of When They Call you a Terrorist here, a memoir written by Patrisse Khan-Cullors, Asha Bandele, with a forward by Angela Davis. This book chronicles the birth of the #BlackLivesMatter movement and the subsequent targeting of the three co-founders.

3. GET READY FOR BLACK PANTHER.

4. GO SEE BLACK PANTHER AND HELP PURCHASE TICKETS FOR BLACK YOUTH.

  • Support Black Panther by going to see the film in theaters.
  • Fund tickets for Black youth. Join the #BlackPantherChallenge here or by going to this GoFundMe link to fund Black Panther tickets for Black children in your local community. Now that the Black Panther superhero is on the big screen, help ensure that Black children can see both him and the inspiring Black women of Wakanda — heroes, intellectuals, inventors, and leaders.
  • Start your own local GoFundMe to give youth in your community the experience of Black Panther! Throw in extra for snacks.
