Ticket Information:

  • Admission: Free

Revolutionary Artist and former Minister of Culture for the Black Panther Party in the US, Emory Douglas, speaks about his life and work at the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery.
Douglas created the striking graphic images that came to represent the Black Panther Party in the 1960s, 70s and early 80s. The group was founded in Oakland, California, and was one of the first organisations in US history to militantly struggle for ethnic minority rights and working class emancipation.
Symbolising the civil unrest of the times, Douglas’ images were used to illustrate the Black Panther, the party’s weekly newspaper. Today he is recognised as an artist in his own right, and his works have been mounted in solo exhibitions around the world.
