Some of Emory Douglas's images are nearly forty years old, but they are still as powerful as when Douglas first created them. They are dangerous pictures, and they were meant to change the world. Emory Douglas was the Revolutionary Artist of the Black Panther Party and subsequently became its Minister of Culture, part of the national leadership. He created the overall design of the 'Black Panther,' the Party's weekly newspaper, and oversaw its layout and production until the Black Panthers disbanded in 1979-80. Curated by the Los Angeles artist Sam Durant, the show includes approximately 165 posters, newspapers, and prints dating from 1967-76.
