Yuri Kochiyama, revolutionary organizer and friend of Malcolm X loved and collected Teddy Bears. She dressed them up as revolutionaries and gave them pins to free political prisoners. She gave gifts of bears to women she loved and respected, which started Betita Martinez’ collection.
In honor of Yuri and Betita’s love for Teddy Bears, we will host a workshop to make and decorate your own revolutionary bear. Please join us Saturday November 11 from 2-4 pm for our one of a kind workshop.
No rsvp needed, but there is a $15 materials fee to make a bear.
