Colette Gaiter will talk about former Black Panther party artist, designer, and illustrator Emory Douglas’s work on The Black Panther newspaper in the 1960s and 70s. His subversive and proactive political cartoons and drawings visualized a movement and galvanized activism that persists into the twenty-first century.

Since 2004, she continues to write about Douglas’s work including his current international human rights activism.
