Raising Red, Black & Green

In honor of the Black August, Marlene C. Hurd, president of the Black Caucus of the California Student Association of Community Colleges, raised the Pan-African Flag at Laney College in Oakland, CA. The colors of Red, Black and Green, commemorated by Pan-African revolutionary Marcus Garvey are symbolic of the African Diaspora.

Red represents the blood of the people, Black represents the people's skin and melanin, while Green represents the land, our Earth.
Laney College is located in Oakland, CA; the birth place of the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense.
