Former Black Panther Leader Elaine Brown Speaks at Marcus Books

Elaine Brown

Elaine Brown, former leader of the Black Panther Party, will give the second in a series of lectures at Marcus Books on May 11, 6:30 p.m. – 8 p.m. at the Oakland  store, 3900 Martin Luther King, Jr. Way.
Born in North Philadelphia, Brown’s story is one of a poor Black woman who managed to break the chains of a prejudiced society to become a powerful leader. Her life has been dedicated to equality, justice, and pride, which she continues to fight for today.
Brown will speak on  “Black Life in the Age of Obama” and will answer questions from the audience after her lecture.
Brown’s first lecture drew a full house.  People are advised to arrive early for seating.  Email Marcus Books at
