American Pictures gallery by Jacob Holdt

From Danish TV when I was reviewing the movie The Butler and suddenly revealed that I had
myself been a Black Panther :-) I used to photograph for their BPP new paper and work in
the headquarters in Oakland with chief editor David DuBois (seen below),
son of the famous W.E.B. DuBois. Also seen are Huey Newton, Erica Huggins and Elaine Brown,
who sings the powerful song at the end of my show American Pictures. But especially I got close
to the fantastic cartoonist, Emory Douglass, whom you see in my photos
.....and who is famous even today in New York Times.
