Thanks to everybody who came out and celebrated 15 years with us! The music was outstanding, the statements from former and current political prisoners were inspirational and it was great to see so many longtime friends and supporters in one place. We want to extend our appreciation to everyone who helped make this anniversary possible and hope that you enjoyed it as much as we did.

If you were not able to make it, you can still help sustain the Freedom Archives by donating HERE.

We also wanted to share the audio of Herman Bell’s tribute to the work of the Freedom Archives. Herman, a former member of the Black Panther Party and political prisoner for the past 40 years, is a revolutionary thinker, educator, and longtime supporter of the Archives.
