Marvin X will be at the Joyce Gordon Gallery for the Emory Douglas exhibit reception, Friday, June 6, 6-9pm. Emory is the Black Panther Party Minister of Culture. Emory came into the BPP via Marvin X's Black House, co-founded by Eldridge Cleaver, BPP Minister of Information. He too was introduced to the BPP by Marvin X.
"Marvin X was my teacher. Many of our comrades came through his Black Arts Theatre: Emory Douglas, Eldridge Cleaver, Bobby Seale, Sam Napier...."
