A new, unread book in excellent condition. 96 pages. 9 1/8"w x 10 1/4"h. Thirty black artists explore contemporary visual traces of the Black Panther Party. From the publisher: In 1966 Huey Newton and Bobby Seale, two college students in Oakland, California, launched The Black Panther Party for Self-Defense. Officially active for less than twenty years (1966-1982), the Panthers indelibly pierced the public consciousness, and for many its legacy remains controversial witness the virulent responses to Beyonce Knowles’ 2016 Super Bowl performance that included an homage to the Panthers through dancers in berets and black leather outfits. That visua gun-toting, well-dressed black men with berets and gun-toting, well-dressed women with Afros is what most of mainstream America, if they know anything at all, think of with regard to the Black Panther Party. This book, All Power: Visual Legacies of the Black Panther Party, evolved from correspondence and conversation with a select list of contemporary black artists who answered the call and submitted work that was from their perspective related to the Party. They include emerging and internationally acclaimed practitioners from around the nation, women and men spanning thirty to seventy years of age.
