“The Art of the Black Panthers”

Philosophy of the Black Panther Party was relevant in history
and it is relevant now more than ever.
Injustice keeps on happening.
Killing Black People Is Not Acceptable.

Emory Douglas: The Art of the Black Panthers

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.

It’s My World

Snowflake Mandala from Coloring Book - A-Work-In-Progress by Jennifer Kiley

Snowflake Mandala from Snowflake Mandalas Coloring Book —  A Work of Meditation-In-Progress by Jennifer Kiley

IT’S MY WORLD

What is so frightening
About a coloring book?

Is it childhood memories
Touching crayons to page
Filling in the spaces?

Now the colors
I choose

I am in control

No supervision
No direction
Obedience is out of sight

Freedom

No beatings
No orders to disobey

It’s my world
And I live in it

=====================

Mandala (Sanskrit Maṇḍala, ‘circle’)
is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Indian religions,
representing the universe.
The basic form of most mandalas is a square with four gates
containing a circle with a center point.

A Mandala is far more than a simple shape.
It represents wholeness, and can be seen as a model for the
organizational structure of life itself–a cosmic diagram
that reminds us of our relation to the infinite, the world
that extends both beyond and within our bodies and minds.

Describing both material and non-material realities, the
Mandala appears in all aspects of life: the celestial circles
we call earth, sun, and moon, as well as conceptual circles
of friends, family, and community.
