Join The Dill Pickle Club, Portland’s creative cultural club, on Saturday, August 13, 2011 for Portland’s Black Panthers: Comic Release and Presentation.
The Black Panthers have a rich and important history in Portland—this new comic from the Dill Pickle Club tells their story.
Artist Khris Soden and writer Sarah Mirk are proud to debut the fourth installment in the Oregon History Comics series work after spending months researching, writing and drawing the 40-page work.
At the launch, local Black Panther Party founder Kent Ford will give a short talk about his experiences within the party and historian Jules Boykoff will discuss the relationship between media and the Panthers in Portland.
For more on the project, check out this interview with Khris Soden at the Dill Pickle Club website.
The presentation takes place at Reflections/Talking Drum (446 NE Killingsworth) from 4pm to 6pm.
