There’s going to be a really cool artist lecture on campus by Emory Douglas, who’s a really important artist! If you have the time, it’s a free event, and could be a chance of a lifetime! As the Minister of Culture of the Black Panther Party and the graphic artist of the Black Panther Party Newspaper, Emory Douglas’ vision of black radical politics as a set of aesthetic concerns graphs a grammar of global struggle.
Friday, March 11th at 1:00, Emory Douglas will be speaking at ARC in Raef Hall 160.
Emory Douglas is an American graphic artist and designer who was the Minister of Culture for the Black Panther Party from 1967 to the 1980s. He created some of the most iconographic art of the time. His work was recently featured at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in an exhibition titled “Emory Douglas: Art and Revolution.” This one-hour event with Q&A following is free of charge. Vaccines are required and masks must be worn the entire time.
