The annual Huey P. Newton Seminar will be taking place on Saturday February 25th in Philadelphia PA. This years theme is “The New Mainstream”, a salute to the upsurge of the people’s movement for social justice in the U.S. with a special focus on the contribution of the Occupy Movement. This year’s Seminar will feature the U.S. Premiere of an independent documentary “Gangs in Blue: Gangsters with Gavels”, a roundtable discussion entitled “The Revolution Will Not Be Occupied: A Critical Discussion of Privilege and Occupy Movement” featuring a diverse perspective of community and occupy organizers, as well as a mixer featuring the area’s hottest DJs and Hip-Hop performers.

The Huey P. Newton Seminar, named after the legendary founder and leader of the Black Panther Party was established in 2001 in Philadelphia by Tommy Joshua of the Polymathematic Assembly of North America (PANA), as a inter-generational forum to encourage the intellectual and political development of the next generation of community-based activists and fighters for social justice.
