Emory Douglas: "Power to the People …"September 11, 2015 through January 3, 2016
As revolutionary artist and minister of culture for the Black Panther Party, Emory Douglas illustrated and designed the group’s newspaper. His poignant visuals document the party’s use of art to inspire self-determination and impel social change through the economic, political, and social empowerment of oppressed peoples.
Emory Douglas: "Power to the People, The Struggle Continues" comprises powerful images in the signature style Douglas developed in the 1960s and 1970s.
