Lecture | Emory Douglas

Emory Douglas was the Minister of Culture and Revolutionary Artist for the Black Panther Party from 1967- 1980. Mr. Douglas helped define the aesthetics of protest art at the height of the Civil Rights and Black Power era, cementing his status among the 20th century’s most influential radical political artists. Following his work on the Black Panther newspaper, he spent 30 years with the black community-oriented San Francisco Sun Reporter. In 2006, his monograph, Black Panther: The Revolutionary Art of Emory Douglas, was published. He has recently had exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, the New Museum in New York, and Tate Modern, London, England among many others. He remains internationally known as a graphic designer and illustrator for his design on social issues.

Enjoy the work of Emory Douglas and the Art of Social Action and a light reception following the lecture.
