Comment by AB: Estimable selection of art is offered for sale to benefit the Bobby Hutton Memorial Foundation. Proceeds go to support artist fees to create a sculpture of Bobby Hutton for Oakland’s De Fremery Park. Plus special added bonus– there’s a fascinating show of vintage Black Panther era images and memorabilia. Tonight’s event is exceptionally well attended including artists, activists, aficionados, historians, and venerable Black Panther notables from back in the day.
