Artists Caleb Duarte, EDELO, and Emory Douglas, former Minister of Culture of the Black Panther Party, present the recent book featuring their Zapantera Negra Art. The artwork drew its inspiration from Douglas’ graphic art featured prominently in the Black Panther newspaper. EDELO added the work of Chiapas artists that wove traditional Zapatista designs onto textiles to create a fusion of Panther art and colorful Zapatista designs. Duarte and Douglas will talk about the Zapantera Negra project, the new book and will also show a video.
