One of the items on display at the Black Panther show at OMCA is this wicker fanback chair. Huey Newton was building up a sort of cultual iconology around American blackness. Perhaps it was intentional, perhaps it was not, but those chairs were often made in the Philippines. We had several in my house growing up. More on this soon.
