Akil Riley, 19, stands in West Oakland’s Lil Bobby Hutton Park, named for one of the first Black Panther Party members. Riley recently co-organized a Juneteenth event at this park, where he performed one of his latest tracks and gave a speech about being a plaintiff in a lawsuit against Oakland Police Department’s use of force against protesters.
