Emory Douglas: Revolutionary Artist of the Black Panthers
On view February 5th to May 4th, 2018
Renowned Revolutionary Artist and Minister of Culture for the Black Panther Party, Emory Douglas has made his mark on American culture through his thoughtful and provocative work. He served as art director and lead illustrator for the Party’s newspaper, for which he created widely distributed prints that now reflect American history and society in the 1960s and 1970s. In conjunction with the Department of History, a selection of Mr. Douglas’ work will make its home @ the Denison Museum in Spring 2018.
