Black Panther: The Revolutionary Art of Emory Douglas

by Emory Douglas, edited by Sam Durant
£19.95   hardback  Rizzoli International Publications (2013)

Black Panther: The Revolutionary Art of Emory Douglas by Emory Douglas, edited by Sam Durant A reformatted and reduced price edition of the first book to show the provocative posters and groundbreaking graphics of the Black Panther Party.
 
The Black Panther Party for Self Defense, formed in the aftermath of the assassination of Malcolm X in 1965, sounded a defiant cry for an end to the institutionalized subjugation of African Americans. The Black Panther newspaper was founded to articulate the partyís message, and artist Emory Douglas became the paperís art director and later the partyís minister of culture. Douglasís artistic talents and experience proved a powerful combination: his striking collages of photographs and his own drawings combined to create some of the eraís most iconic images.
 
This landmark book brings together a remarkable lineup of party insiders who detail the crafting of the partyís visual identity.
