Douglas, Emory



Emory Douglas was minister of culture for the Black Panther Party from 1967 until its discontinuation in the early 1980’s. Douglas’s powerful visuals helped define the style of the group’s newspapers, posters and pamphlets. His bold illustrations and striking images spoke forcefully to a community ravaged by poverty, police brutality and poor living conditions and portrayed a populace fighting to assert their rights to equality.
