Re-print from Justseeds’ Poor People’s Campaign Print Portfolio, Everybody’s Got A Right To Live was inspired by the community garden movements in West Oakland (shout out to Bottoms Up Community Garden)- tracing roots back to the Black Panther Party’s food sovereignty goals. The phrase was taken from a song by Jimmy Collier & Rev Fred Kirkpatrick and popularized by Pete Seeger.
