On April 11, 2018, legendary artist, activist, and former Minister of Culture for the Black Panther Party for Self Defense Emory Douglas sat down with the California College of the Arts (CCA) Students of Color Coalition in a roundtable conversation. Douglas talked about his work in creating iconic images of Black liberation as a director, designer, and illustrator for the Panther newspaper.

This conversation was organized by Sita Bhaumik, Scholar in Residence at CCA's Center for Art + Public Life, as part of the Art + Survival program, supported by the CCA Center for Art and Public Life, the President's Diversity Steering Group, in collaboration with Diversity Studies, CCA Students of Color Coalition, People's Kitchen Collective, and Art Practical.
