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.
