MARQUETTE, Mich. (WZMQ)- A civil rights movement leader spoke Thursday night to NMU students and community members about the ongoing fight for equality.
Bobby Seale co-founded the black panther party in 1966. Tonight he told stories from his six decades of political activism in an hour-long talk moderated by nmu students.
Seale says he hopes his visit to Northern leaves students inspired.
“Whether your black, white, blue, red, green, yellow, or polka dot, ethnicity et cetera, we got to make this a unified framework, we got to keep our democracy,” remarked Seale.
The event was hosted by the Black Student Union and the Young Socialist Democrats of America.
