just found this website with lots of images from the black panther newspaper, designed by emory douglas. black panther party newspapers 2 pages, 23 images revolutionary art from emory douglas from the same site, 21 images, including douglas' "position paper #1 on revolutionary art" aiga has a pretty interesting article on douglas here. his dedication to his work is admirable -- 13 years designing and publishing the weekly bpp paper. i wonder how many designers are out there today with the same dedication to something outside of the insular world of graphic design culture.
a tidbit over at social design notes about the greek protests sparked by the police murder of 15 year old alex grigoropoulos. there was quite a large visual response that accompanied a huge amount of protesting in the streets. check out a collection of some posters here, and some interesting commentary about them here. a good interview with alex's friend, who was with him when he was shot, is located here. tragically, it sounds no different from any other act of police brutality.
