“Emory Douglas: The Art of The Black Panthers,” the latest short film from the New York City production house dress code (previously) celebrates the work of Emory Douglas during his years with the Black Panther Party and how his work is still incredibly relevant so many years later.
Emory Douglas was the Revolutionary Artist and Minister of Culture for the Black Panther Party. Through archival footage and conversations with Emory we share his story, alongside the rise and fall of the Panthers. He used his art as a weapon in the Black Panther Party’s struggle for civil rights and today Emory continues to give a voice to the voiceless. His art and what The Panthers fought for are still as relevant as ever.
