Sherry A. Wells, an attorney and a Gray Panthers of Metro Detroit Board Member, and Kennie Kb Bowles, an actor, will perform a dialogue about the two movements, the Black Panthers and the Gray Panthers. Sherry has done extensive research on both movements. This performance includes a short celebration of the Gray Panthers 50th anniversary led by Professor Mike Whitty, an early organizer of Gray Panthers of Metro Detroit.
