Black Panthers in Seattle

When I lived in Seattle, I would regularly see a Black Panther. He would be standing at the main entrance to the University of Washington campus collecting money for the breakfast programs run by the Black Panthers. I regularly put some money in the can.

Breakfast programs for school children are now a regular program - the schools I taught at in the 1980s had these programs. The Black Panthers had what at the time were radical ideas -- feeding kids was one of those radical ideas.

I did see the movie. It is good.
