Emory Douglas

Emory Douglas, ex-Minister of Culture for the Black Panthers, talks about his life and work with cultural commentator Ekow Eshun.

Emory Douglas was minister of culture for the Black Panther Party from 1967 until its discontinuation in the early 1980s. Douglas's powerful visuals helped define the style of the group's newspapers, posters, and pamphlets. His bold illustrations and striking images spoke forcefully to a community ravaged by poverty, police brutality, and poor living conditions and portrayed a populace fighting to assert their rights to equality.

The Black Panthers mission was to improve the lives of African Americans by calling for resistance and change, as well providing social services to their communities.

Ekow Eshun is a writer, cultural commentator and broadcaster. He was the former Director of the Institute of Contemporary Arts and appears frequently on TV and radio programmes. He has written and presented several documentaries for the BBC and Channel 4.
