Lecture: Ericka Huggins

RSVP to attend

Human rights activist, poet, educator, Black Panther Party leader and former political prisoner Ericka Huggins has, for the past 36 years, lectured personally and honestly throughout the United States and internationally on her life experiences with issues relating to the physical and emotional well-being of women, children, and youth; whole-being education; the incarceration of men and women of color; and the role of the spiritual practice in sustaining activism and promoting social change. Arrested with Bobby Seale, she awaited trial for two years before charges were dropped, including time in solitary confinement, during which time she taught herself to meditate as a means to survive incarceration and separation from her baby daughter. From that time, she’s incorporated spiritual practice into her community work as a speaker and facilitator, teaching it as a tool for change—not only for herself but for all people, regardless of age, race, gender, sexuality, or culture.
