Original Poster: I Am A Black Woman

New York: New York Committee To Free Angela Davis / Afro-Arts Inc. 1971. An original poster designed and produced by Richard McCrary for the NY Committee to Free Angela Davis. The poster prominently features an image of Davis with her fist clenched, and a poem by McCrary printed at upper left corner: "Angela, yes you are a black woman - and I want it to be known; The only thing you're guilty of, is being a black woman, to the bone / For such beauty to be held captive is really no mystery; It is because you are a black woman, truly black enough for me." We note a single example at auction (Swann, 2014 - $7,500), with the only other example known to us held in the Rossman Family Collection at the Oakland Museum of California. Not located in OCLC. A1. Original poster, lithographed in three colors on white stock, measuring 58.5cm x 76cm (23" x 30"). A Fine copy / A.
