A true icon, Emory Douglas served as the Minister of Culture for the Black Panther Party, creating the artwork that became a symbol of the movement. Over the course of his career, Douglas has cemented himself as a prolific artist and activist.

 The internationally renowned Black Panther Party artist will be in Detroit for a series of public events and conversations. Events include two public lectures and a creative activity for children, all free and open to the public. A ticketed fundraising event will include a screening of the short film Emory Douglas: The Art of the Black Panthers followed by the feature documentary The Eyes of the Rainbow with a discussion and reception to follow. All proceeds will go to the Emory Douglas Youth and Family Art Program (EDAP).
