Tasty tidbits from the past. Mostly images, but hopefully all food for thought. A definite 19th century focus, but I try to keep an open mind.

Revolutionary Student, Emory Douglas, c.1970.
From the Victoria and Albert Museum: “The Black Panther Party was a militant civil rights group. Its initial  purpose was the patrolling of black ghettos to protect residents from  police brutality. The carrying of guns was integral to this policy of  self-defence and symbolic of it. The Party also urged the black  community to be self-reliant and advocated the teaching of Black  History. Emory Douglas (the Panther’s Minister for Culture) fuses these  principles in this poster. The revolutionary student wears non-American  dress and carries a Black Studies book along with the trademark firearm.”
