Emory Douglas & The Black Panthers - All Power to the People!
Friday 28 September 2018
Saturday 22 December 2018
West Den Haag
As the Minister of Culture for the Black Panther Party, Emory Douglas became responsible for all the graphic and visual design. His iconic works are symbol of the Afro-American situation during the sixties and seventies in the United States, and the struggle for change. The party was fully aware of the fact that visual culture is of major importance for the transfer of the political message.
Their battle cry 'All power to the People!' did not lose its strength and is actually still in full force. West will show works from the early years of the party. During an international symposium on 28 + 29 November (with a.o. Emory Douglas, Kathleen Cleaver, Firoze Manji and Jared Ball), we will investigate the role of artists and activists in society.
