Emory Douglas reception at the Joyce Gordon Gallery, 14th and Franklin, downtown Oakland

Marvin X will be at the Joyce Gordon Gallery for the Emory Douglas exhibit reception, Friday, June 6. 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...."
