Minister of Culture for the Black Panther Party
Emory Douglas - a Mini Documentary
Spiritual Sunday Special

A few months back we posted a piece on Black Panther artist Emory Douglas.
Today I just found this great mini- documentary on Emory and his art and the Panthers, dig it!

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.
