The Mission
UC Irvine’s Black Panther Oakland Community School (BPOCS) research cluster was formed in Spring 2021 to advance research, teaching, and learning about the Black Panther Party’s survival programs through public programs, exhibitions, community archives, and digital project development towards the release of a film documentary about the Oakland Community School.
