December Challenge Day 2 - City Lights Books

Day 2. The first day of the Comrade Sisters Women of the Black Panther Party book tour included a second stop across the Bay in San Francisco at City Lights Bookstore. It was cold that day, but the guests showed up to learn more about the experiences and lives of women in the BPP. I was excited to reunite with Katherine Campbell and Judy Juanita. ericka and Katherine I have known since 1991 and Judy only since 2016, but watching them all together and listening to them share their common and distinct experiences reminded me of ericka's definition of "comrade sister" on page 25 of the text: "the family we choose, a bond that defies location, time and biology, a life well-lived."
