Hagada Hasmalit - Ahad Ha'am 70, Tel Aviv,
As part of the annual series of events commemorating the late Noam Kaminer, we will devote this evening to the relationship between the Black Panthers and the independent left in Israel.
Almost 50 years since the appearance of the Black Panthers on the stage of Israeli history, and we still digest the origins and effects of the call of the Panther rebellion. In the evening we will pay attention to one of the most complex and unfamiliar aspects of the Panthers phenomenon – its relations with the political left. We shall discuss the connections, tensions, and mutual influences between the Panthers and the Zionist left, the Communist Party, and the new “independent” left to which Noam belonged, who was isolated from the first two streams. After the short lectures there will be an open discussion with the audience.
Guidance and opening remarks: Anat Saragusti, journalist and political activist
– Reuven Abergel, one of the founders of the Black Panthers;
– Dr. Yali Hashash, Tel Aviv University;
– Prof. Joel Beinin, Stanford University.
