"As a young man of twenty-two, Emory Douglas found himself at a meeting with recent cofounders of the Black Panther Party, Bobby Seale and Huey P. Newton. Seale was putting together the first issue of the Black Panther, the party's newspaper, but Douglas, a commercial art student at San Francisco City College, knew that he could improve its design and production." "Douglas's artistic talents and experience with design and printing proved to be a powerful combination for the paper: his bold graphics and striking images, collaged from photographs and his own drawings, spoke forcefully to a community ravaged by poverty, police harassment, and poor living conditions." "In this book, Douglas's creative genius and graphics are chronicled for the first time. Featuring more than 200 full-color illustrations, Sam Durant, the volume's editor, brings together contributions by Douglas's comrades in the party and other luminaries from the fields of literature, film, and art - including Bobby Seale, Kathleen Cleaver, Amiri Baraka, Sonia Sanchez, St. Clair Bourne, Danny Glover, Greg Jung Morozumi, and Colette Gaiter - to discuss Douglas's seminal role in the crafting of the party's visual identity and cultural programs and his lasting influence on generations of artists and designers."--BOOK JACKET.

Newton and Bobby Seale. Simultaneous.
