Emory Douglas

Born, 1943

From the publication, In Black and White: Prints from Africa and the Diaspora, by Gill Saunders and Zoe WhitleyV&A Publishing, 2013: “The graphics of Emory Douglas are today synonymous with the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense (BPP), founded by black nationalists Huey P. Newton and Bobby Seale in Oakland, California in 1966. Douglas, by that time, had completed his studies at City College and joined the Panthers, impressed by their discipline and organization, which he credits with transforming his thinking.”
