Power in Print explores the art of the Black Power movement poster, showcasing a variety of aesthetics, styles, and messaging strategies. This collection-based exhibition pulls together dozens of posters from the Schomburg Center’s Art and Artifacts Division. The display also includes a selection of iconic imagery by artist, designer, and former Minister of Culture of the Black Panther Party, Emory Douglas. Both at the time and in our historical memory, Douglas’s designs came to visually communicate the ideals of Black Power and the political stances of the Black Panther Party. Power in Print is co-curated by Dr. Sylviane A. Diouf and Isissa Komada-John.
