BLACK LIVES MATTER. The absolute core message of "Yellow Peril Supports Black Power" is of solidarity. Asians joining together in support of Black Lives, should be considered a danger or threat, to the existing systems of racism and oppression.

In tribute to Emory Douglas’ work as the creative force behind the Black Panthers movement.
The Black Power symbol of the raised fist is shown wrapped in smoke. The incense smoke represents the Asian support and spiritual presence. The use of incense exists in almost all Asian cultures. It is used in ceremory, cleansing, healing and spiritual strength in battle. Together we fight the war against racism.
Black Lives Matter.

Inspired by the 1960's symbolic 'Yellow Peril Support Black Power' poster, the tiger and panther reunited. From 1969 the rally for 'Free Huey Newton' and the protest over 'Justice for George Floyd' in 2020, the union against racism between Asians and African Americans have been standing together for justice. The aging effect on the graphic represents the history of the union and friendship.
United, we can make a better future.
Black Lives Matter.

The goal of this collab graphic/project, was really the result of a conversation between black and asian designer/artists. I think the saying “yellow peril supports black power”, has strength and power and is a great starting point for inquiry conversations into solidarity between BIPOC groups.
The youth can be empowered by aligning with this saying. Same thing goes with the symbols we've used, there's more abstraction, more conversations. We felt the need to create new symbols, inspired by historical messages to hopefully create new systems of support between different minorities
In 1969, at a civil rights rally in Oakland, Asian-American activists were spotted supporting Huey Newton with a sign that read “YELLOW PERIL SUPPORTS BLACK POWER.” Newton was an African-American political activist and revolutionary who co-founded the Black Panther Party in 1966.
During a time where racial injustice is as tangible as the ground we stand on, we must show solidarity with one another in order to actively denounce and eradicate its existence.
This phrase, although it may conjure negative feelings from past racism against Asians, represents an important historical reference from past showings of solidarity with the Black community.
