Emory Douglas: The Art of the Black Panthers
Dress Code, 2015, 8 min
Emory Douglas was the Revolutionary Artist and Minister of Culture for the Black Panther Party. Through archival footage and conversations with Emory we share his story, alongside the rise and fall of the Panthers. He used his art as a weapon in the Black Panther Party's struggle for civil rights and today Emory continues to give a voice to the voiceless. His art and what the Panthers fought for are still as relevant as ever.
Lords of the Revolution
VH1, 2009, 60 min
In the 60s, there were few radical groups more controversial that The Black Panthers. Led by the dynamic personalities of Bobby Seale, Huey Newton and Eldridge Cleaver, the Panthers boldly challenged white America to deliver justice and opportunity for all. Armed with guns and clad with berets and leather jackets, the Panthers advocated self-defense; initiated social service programs nationwide; and became a defiant symbol of Black Power. The also become a target as the FBI and police waged a bloody war to bring the party down.
