Léger, Marc James, and David Tomas, eds. Zapantera Negra: An Artistic Encounter Between Black Panthers and Zapatistas. Brooklyn: Common Motions, 2017.
The Black Panthers and the Zapatistas were born into a centuries-long struggle against capitalism, colonialism, state repression, and international war and plunder. Not only do these two movements offer the world an enduring image of freedom and dignified rebellion, they do so with rebellious style, putting culture and aesthetics at the forefront of political life. A powerful elixir of hope and determination, Zapantera Negra provides a galvanizing presentation of interviews, militant artwork and original documents from these two movements’ struggle for dignity and liberation.
