02/13/2013 7:00 pm

Aaron Dixon is one of the co-founders of the Seattle chapter of the Black Panther Party. He has since founded Central House, a nonprofit that provides transitional housing for youth, and was one of the cofounders of the Cannon House, a senior assisted-living facility. He will present his memoir, My People Are Rising. His book has received much praise. A sampling follows:

“There have been many books about the Black Panther party but never has there been a Panther book as illuminating as this memoir by Aaron Dixon. It's the story from a different perspective than we've ever seen:  the former member who has remained a long-distance runner for revolution. It's indispensable for anyone with an interest in black politics or the politics of change in the United States.” –Dave
Zirin, the _Nation_

“Aaron Dixon is a courageous, compassionate, and wise freedom fighter whose story of his pioneering work in the Black Panther Party is
powerful and poignant. Don’t miss it!”—Cornel West

“This book is a moving memoir experience: a must-read. The dramatic life cycle rise of a youthful sixties political revolutionary.”
  —Bobby Seale, founding chairman and national organizer of the Black Panther Party, 1966 to 1974
