Screenprint on off-white wove paper, 1970. 813x622 mm; 32x24 1/2 inches, full margin. Artist proof, aside from the edition of 10. Signed, titled, dated and inscribed "Artist proof" in pencil, lower margin.

Heritage is a very scarce and important print that Jones-Hogu created during her years in AfriCOBRA. This proof version is printed in black ink - Jones-Hogu made another version in colors which she chose to represent her work on the poster for the AFRICOBRA 1: Ten in Search of a Nation exhibition, the first major exhibition of AfriCOBRA at the Studio Museum in Harlem in 1970.

Another impression of this print dated 1969 was included in the exhibition Barbara Jones-Hogu: Resist, Relate, Unite at the DePaul Art Museum, Chicago, 2018, and is illustrated in the catalogue.
