A good revolutionary never goes down quiet. Take Emory Douglas, the one-time Black Panther minister of culture who will be in San Francisco Sept. 23 for a talk and book signing.

The event will feature a talk, slideshow and Q&A with Douglas, signing his new book, Black Panther: The Revolutionary Art of Emory Douglas. This event will also raise funds to free the San Francisco-8, eight former Black Panthers and community leaders arrested in January on 36-year-old charges.

He takes the stage 5 p.m. at the Center for Political Education, 522 Valencia St., at 16th Street. $5-$100, sliding scale, no one turned away for lack of funds. Sangria, beer and non-alcoholic drinks and snacks!For more information, contact sfprintcollective@gmail.com or
