Visual Revolution: The Art of Emory Douglas

Part of Hippie Modernism: The Struggle for Utopia

Join us for an intimate conversation with artist Emory Douglas, former minister of culture for the Black Panther Party in 1967. During its active years he served as the art director, overseeing the design and layout of the party’s weekly newspaper.

Part of Penumbra’s Let’s Talk series hosted by co-artistic director Sarah Bellamy, the evening includes insights by Roger Cummings, Juxtaposition Arts artistic director; artist and scholar Colette Gaiter, University of Delaware; and Nisa Mackie, director and curator of education and public programs at the Walker.
