Toxic Waste

Emory Douglas

Image by Emory Douglas.

Migration Now! was a 2012 print portfolio co-produced by Justseeds and CultureStrike (CultureStrike is now part of the Center for Cultural Power) which explored the social, cultural, and emotional facets of immigration.

Emory Douglas is a self-taught artist whose only professional training came from majoring in commercial art while attending City College of San Francisco in the 1960’s; all other art experience came from on-the-job training. Douglas was the Revolutionary Artist and Minister of Culture for The Black Panther Party from 1967-1981. He has had major exhibitions of his artwork in the U.S. and abroad and his work has been in major films, documentaries and publications worldwide. Douglas’ retrospective art book Black Panther: The Revolutionary Art of Emory Douglas was published by Rizzoli International in February of 2007 and has since been published in Japanese. Douglas continues to exhibit his work and lecture nationwide.

“Toxic Waste” highlights the toxic, racist nature of extreme anti-immigration policy and how it spreads nationwide.

Seattle’s International Working Women’s Day for Palestine and Beyond

“We stand in solidarity with our Palestinian siblings in Gaza and those among our community who are directly and indirectly affected by the current war and genocide by the Israeli settler-colonial regime. Passive observation of the horrors of bombings, genocide, and prolonged apartheid is not our way. We must rise and firmly proclaim that Palestinian Liberation is a Feminist Imperative.” – Feminists for Jina Seattle
