As the Black Panther Party’s Minister of Culture from 1967-the early 1980s, Emory Douglas' art and design concepts have been featured on the front and back pages of the Black Panther Newspaper, reflecting the politics of the Black Panther Party and the concerns of the community. Emory Douglas’s iconic graphic style and powerful visual storytelling have inspired artists and activists for generations.
