Editorial Reviews


" much needed space to Douglas' work with numerous full-page reproductions." -- Art on Paper

"...these lost visual artifacts are faithfully preserved and contextualized. Douglas finally gets his due." "Handsomely designed..." "Douglas' art was never brought into mainstream commerce the way hip-hop art and design were, so today it is as powerful as similar expressions by Goya, Daumier, George Grosz and other great political artists." -- New York Times Book Review

"...this tome collects some of the potent and resonant images and collages Douglas created..." --

"Douglas finally gets his due." -- New York Times --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
Sometimes when images from newspapers or TV are taken out of context they can fall flat out of meaning or context. Not so for the revolutionary work of Emory Douglas. Douglas who was the Minister of Culture for the Black Panther Party from 1968-1980 and it's weekly newspaper artist amassed more works for the paper in a short period than most artists in a lifetime. But quantity is not the focus here but quality, growth and diversity. Emory Douglas is a prolific artist; his one page pieces included in the Black Panther newspaper were captivating and profoundly moved individuals all over the world no matter what language they spoke. His work has influenced every generation of artists/writers/activists who found their way into his work. It is interesting to note that while Emory's finished work was incredibly elaborate looking his tools of choice were simple pen, marker, tape and paper. His palette always represented and reflected the working class.

Black Panther: The Revolutionary Art of Emory Douglas focuses on many of Emory's best works and includes forward and texts from former Panther Chairman Bobby Seale, Kathleen Cleaver, Amiri Baraka (still NJ Poet-Lauriat in my book)and Danny Glover among a few.

A definite must for anyone and everyone!!!!!!!

Very glad to see that this book, which should have a much wider audience, is being re-issued by Rizzoli in early 2014. Emory Douglas was a passionate, talented artist. Without his work, the Panthers would have lost one of their best means of communication. He's a hero.

This is a must-have for the Black Panther memorabilia collector, the African American art collector or any great art book lover's collection! A beautiful and unique book. The pages are printed on a paper that really makes it look like the original Black Panther papers. I love this book.
