It is said in an email conversation by Veterans of the Civil Rights Movement, this logo was drawn by Ruth Howard Chambers. The Lowndes County black panther was an exact copy traced by Ruth Howard of the Clark College (now Clark Atlanta University) panther, the mascot of its athletic teams and was admittedly "cleaned up" by Dorothy Zellner under the instruction of Stokely Carmichael.
