Few photographers had the insider access Oakland native Jeffrey Henson Scales did around the Black Panther Party in the late 1960s. Capturing rare and intimate portraits of the movement’s leaders in action and in repose, In a Time of Panthers: Early Photographs explores Scales’ newly discovered, rich archive and is more urgent than ever in context of today’s ongoing struggle for racial justice. The book includes a foreword by CBVC Director, University Professor, and Chair, Department of Photography & Imaging at Tisch School of the Arts, Dr. Deborah Willis, and an essay by Dr. Waldo E. Martin Jr., Professor of History at the University of California, Berkeley.
