Clarion Alley Mural Project (CAMP) is proud to present the second event of our Wall + Response project, featuring sixteen Bay Area poets responding to the social/ political/ racial/ justice narratives of four murals on Clarion Alley, hosted by Booksmith and The Bindery on Friday, Ferbruary 26, 2021 at 6pm.
Curated by CAMP artist and organizer Megan Wilson (wall) and poet Maw Shein Win (response), the second event in the series features Karla Brundage, Jennifer Hasegawa, Tureeda Mikell and Kim Shuck responding to the mural What We Want! by Emory Douglas/Black Panther Party / Remix by CUBA, Unity, MACE.
What We Want! (2011) by Emory Douglas/Black Panther Party / remix by CUBA, Unity, MACE reflects the legacy of the Black Panthers and their core work towards social, political, racial, economic, and food justice. The mural, based on a design by Emory Douglas with elements from the Black Panther Party’s Ten-Point Program is a remix painted by graffiti artists CUBA (Clarence Robbs), D8 (David Petrelli), and MACE (Alex Douhovnikoff). The artists ensure the work is maintained and periodically add messaging based on critical needs of the moment. These gestures of care and thoughtfulness reflect the intent of the original work and support the ongoing movement to secure the demands stated in What We Want Now!.
