2016 marks the 9th Annual Life Is Living Festival in Oakland. Over the past 10 years, they have transformed deFremery Park (Little Bobby Hutton Park) from vacant to vibrant. They are indebted to the local West Oakland heroes and sheroes of The Black Panther Party for inspiring them to use culture as a vehicle for social change. That said, they are honored to pay tribute to the enduring legacy of The Black Panther Party at this year’s festival.
Through efforts such as The Free Breakfast Program, they re-dedicate ourselves to sustaining the Panther’s revolutionary commitment to community generated solutions.
