Emory Douglas: The Art of The Black Panthers

Emory Douglas was the Revolutionary Artist and Minister of Culture for the Black Panther Party. Through archival footage and conversations with Emory we share his story, alongside the rise and fall of the Panthers. He used his art as a weapon in the Black Panther Party’s struggle for civil rights and today Emory continues to give a voice to the voiceless. His art and what The Panthers fought for are still as relevant as ever.

Google "Barbados Scots", you will find that the first slaves to work the plantations of Barbados with Anglican Hamiltonian Royalists which were POWs of the Cromwellian Civil War. Genetically, these people would marry the black population which came latter to the English plantations of the West Indies.

Family was indentured to the Colony of Massachusetts. Whites seem to climatically work better in cooler climates. There was a Robert Brown Elliott League of San Francisco which put out this poster.

Making conections

The more information you can give about the people you mention, the more chance there is of someone else connecting with your family.

Dates and places of births, deaths and marriages all help to place families.

Professions also help.

'My great-grandmother mother was a Douglas from Montrose' does not give many clues to follow up! But a bit of flesh on the bones makes further research possible. But if we are told who she married, what his profession was and where the children were baptised, then we can get to work.

Maybe it is time to update the information in your profile?
