Emory Douglas ~ Black History Painter

From 1968 to 1982 Douglas was the official artist of the Black Panther Party, militant child of America’s civil rights movement, which rejected the politics of nonviolence in favour of the right to bear arms in defence of black oppression. The FBI director J. Edgar Hoover considered the group “the single greatest threat to the internal security of the United States”. Their hero was the assassinated black civil rights leader Malcolm X, their symbol the black power salute, memorably employed on the winners’ podium by two American athletes at the Mexico Olympic Games in 1968
