Emeryville, CA: Black Panther Party for Self Defence, [1968]. Attractive copy of one of the most iconic posters produced by the Black Panther Party, depicting a striking portrait of Defense Minister Huey P. Newton. Newton was among the most highly-publicized personalities by the Panthers, with photographs and artistic renderings of him used to brand the Party on everything from buttons, posters, newspapers, and greeting cards. His depiction here is one asserting revolutionary power and authority, seated in a fan-backed wicker chair, holding a bolt-action rifle in one hand and a spear in the other.
