The UC Santa Cruz Special Collections at McHenry Library highlights the current exhibit in Special Collections and Archives, Pictures and Progress: The Black Panther 1966-2016 and welcomes you back to campus this spring.

The Black Panther Party was officially formed in 1966, shortly after the creation of Marvel Comics Black Panther character. Fifty years later, two interconnected exhibits examine the role of women in the Party and in the comic. Curators explore the role of women in the Party through photographs from the Pirkle Jones and Ruth-Marion Baruch Collection, ephemera, and original posters by Emory Douglas. About 40 comics have been selected to explore the portrayal of the Black Panther character and African Americans in the second half of the 20th Century. These exhibits have been curated by crystal am nelson, Cathy Thomas and Kiran Garcha, Ph.D. students at UC Santa Cruz.

The collection will be open on Saturday, April 29th, from 11a-2p at the UC Santa Cruz Special Collections and Archives McHenry Library 3rd floor.

Also, the Special Collections staff will have additional photographs from the Pirkle Jones and Ruth-Marion Baruch Collection on display that day. See you soon!
