Come Sip and Hack with us! As one of most creatives beloved guilty pleasures, Pinterest is a tool for idea sharing and problem solving. In response to the oversaturation of whiteness in most search platforms for visual content, this hack will bring people together to create a visual paradigm shift. In this Pinterest Hack, guests will discover and share unknown, little known, and well known black photographers and image makers in the Pinterest platform. Hackers contribute to a Pinterest Board while sipping wine and building with community. Attendees will end the night by participating in a digital altar exercise using their personal device to respond to a prompted question. With a presentation by Emory Douglas and facilitated by Ayo Suber and André D. Singleton.

Emory Douglas was born May 24th, 1943 in Grand Rapids Michigan. He has been a resident of the San Francisco California Bay Area since 1951. Douglas attended City College of San Francisco where he majored in commercial art. He was politically involved as Revolutionary Artist and then Minister of Culture for the Black Panther Party from February 1967 until the early 1980s. Douglas’s art and design concepts were always seen on the front and back pages of the Black Panther Newspaper, reflecting the politics of the Black Panther Party and the concerns of the community.
