Mr Monkey sees Black Panther at Urbis, 6th November

"It's two different views of the role of women"

To show that the Black Panthers weren't just a bunch of blokes with guns and berets, Emory put women into a lot of his artwork. Mr Monkey looked at the first ever full colour Black Panther poster, which centres on a woman, then studied another poster in which an African-American woman expressed solidarity with oppressed people around the world by carrying a spear as well as a rifle.
