[Angela Davis] Shapiro, Barry. Black Panthers. Angela Davis Poster, 22” x 16-1/2” inches; minimal wear. Del Mar, CA: Fanshen Press, 1971. Collage depicting Angela Davis behind bars within a clenched fist. At the time of the poster's printing Angela Davis was imprisoned and on trial for conspiracy charges, which gained her international fame. Davis championed the cause of black prisoners in the 1960s and 1970s, and grew particularly attached to a young revolutionary, George Jackson, of the Soledad Brothers. Davis was suspected of complicity in Jackson's escape attempt which killed four people. After spending roughly 18 months in prison, Davis was acquitted in June 1972.
