What Makes a Creative Mind Tick Lecture Series Present Emory Douglas

What Makes a Creative Mind Tick Lecture Series Present Emory Douglas

 What Makes a Creative Mind Tick Lecture by Emory Douglas, April 2, 2008 in the John B. Coleman Library. Room 109 at 2:00 pm. Mr. Douglas will be on campus to speak about his work as a part of the program series that brings the voices of visual artists to campus. All are welcome to attend this program. For additional details about this event please contact Ms. Lauren Kelley at Ldkelley@pvamu.edu or (936) 261-1523.Emory Douglas worked as the Minister of Culture for the Black Panther Party from 1967 until the Party disbanded in the 1980s. His graphic art was featured in most issues of the Party’s newspaper, The Black Panther (which had a peak circulation of 139,000 per week in 1970). He has become an iconic representation of the struggles of the Party during the 1960′s and 1970′s. The San Francisco Chronicle reported that Douglas “branded the militant-chic Panther image decades before the concept became commonplace. He used the newspaper’s popularity (circulation neared 400,000 at its peak in 1970) to incite the disenfranchised to action, portraying the poor with genuine empathy, not as victims but as outraged, unapologetic and ready for a fight.”
