By Emory Douglas, Artist
1- Don’t be fooled by deception.
2- Don’t be deceitful or corruptible.
3- Know you get more truth from the artists than from bureaucrats.
4- Recognize that art is a powerful too, a language that can be used to Enlighten, Infrom, a guide to Actions.
5- Create art that Recognizes the Oppression of Others, and considers basic quality of life concerns and basic human rights issues.
6- Create art of social concerns that even a child can understand.
7- The goal should always be the Make the Message Clear.
8- Make an effort to not create political art dealing with social issues just because it’s a cool thing to do.
9- Create art that Challenges the Colonization of the Imagination.
10- Self evaluate ones work, and be open to constructive evaluations from others, be open to making adjustments if you choose to do so and be prepared if necessary to defend and explain what you communicate through your art.
11- Know the rules before you break the rules.
12- Do not lose sight of what the goals are.
