The Art Of The Black Panthers At Maysles In Harlem

the art of the blackpanthers

Here are two films from the Black Panther Film Festival 7 that starts on Friday, September 25th-Saturday, and continues to October 3rd, 2015, at the Maysles Documentary Center in Harlem, NY.

Here are the two films:

The Art Of The Black

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.

Lords of the Revolution

In the 60s, there were few radical groups more controversial that The Black Panthers. Led by the dynamic personalities of Bobby Seale, Huey Newton and Eldridge Cleaver, the Panthers boldly challenged white America to deliver justice and opportunity for all.

Post-screening Q&A with original members of the BPP.

Both Friday, October 2nd, 7:00pm
