Life as a Black Panther: Newly discovered photos show the unseen side of the movement fighting for civil rights
- Pirkle Jones and Ruth-Marion Baruch stood in solidarity with the BPP, photographing their fight for equality
- The couple aimed to show a different image of the protesters from the mainstream media at the time
- Images show people of all ages taking on police brutality with community activism and political education
- Elbert ‘Bigman’ Howard, one of the Panther founders, said the couple ‘had a great eye for humanity'
- Baruch said at the time: 'We can only tell you: This is what we saw. This is what we felt. These are the people.'
- Vanguard Revisited will take their images and display alongside the work of four contemporary black artists and collectives - Kija Lucas, Tosha Stimage, Chris Martin, and 5/5 Collective, at the San Francisco Art Institute
