Graphic artist and activist Emory Douglas is perhaps best known as the "revolutionary artist" and minister of culture for the Black Panther Party from 1967 through its discontinuation in the early 1980s. In collaboration with Kenny Gravillis, Inc., he designed a poster for Spike Lee's 2020 movie "Da 5 Bloods" and a poster for the 2021 Warner Bros. film "Judas and the Black Messiah." Register online in advance to receive the Zoom link.

Douglas is the author of "Black Panther: The Revolutionary Art of Emory Douglas" (Rizzoli, 2014), edited by Sam Durant, with a foreword by Danny Glover and preface by Bobby Seale. A retrospective of his work was published in the June/July 2008 issue of Art in America. He received the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) Lifetime Achievement Medal Award in 2015. In 2019, the city and county of San Francisco proclaimed May 24 "Emory Douglas Day." Also in 2019, he was awarded an honorary doctorate from the San Francisco Art Institute.
