Emory Douglas, Black Panthers Illustrator

Schönes Videoportrait über Emory Douglas, Illustrator und Plakatgestalter der Black Panther, ein paar seiner Arbeiten findet man auf der Website vom MOCA Los Angeles.

Emory Douglas was the Revolutionary Artist and Minister of Culture for the Black Panther Party. Through archival footage and conversations with Emory we share his story, alongside the rise and fall of the Panthers. He used his art as a weapon in the Black Panther Party’s struggle for civil rights and today Emory continues to give a voice to the voiceless. His art and what The Panthers fought for are still as relevant as ever.
