Today on the Live Drive @ 5 we will be joined by civil and human rights activist, former Green Party Senate Candidate and author Aaron Dixon who chronicled his time as a member and captain in the Seattle chapter of the Black Panther Party in the 2012 book My People Are Rising: Memoir of a Black Panther Party Captain. Mr. Dixon marched with Martin Luther King Jr to end housing discrimination as a young man and later he would start a free breakfast program for school children, a free medical clinic and a legal clinic through his work with the Panthers. While The Seattle Black Panther Party has been long gone as the party itself fell victim to the FBI’s illegal war on the Black community specifically the Black Panthers, the free services Dixon helped start are still in existence.
