Cicely Rue is proud to share information about The Eye of the Panther with the community of Austin for the first time. In this creative and revolutionary tale, author Cicely Rue conveys a message of rebellion against white supremacy to inspire individuals within the black community to organize and act regardless of different philosophies and lifestyles.
Synopsis: A black revolutionary group determined to eradicate the stench of white supremacy. The Eye of the Panther is unlike any black civil rights organization. Refusing to adhere to respectability politics, they employ radical methods instead of the non-violent tactics used by their predecessors. In their use of untraditional methods, the members of the Founding Order must put their conflicting philosophies aside to achieve their common goal.
What readers are saying so far…
Cicely Rue is a firm believer “Before every revolution there is a spark in the arts that prompts the evitable.” Unwilling to censor her artistry to appeal to the politics of respectability and non-violence, The Eye of the Panther reflects the pain, brutality, and disenfranchisement the black community has experienced at the hands of white supremacy. It’s a fictional warning that foreshadows what can potentially happen if Black Americans continue to be oppressed. She currently lives in Dallas, TX.
