An impression of this print was included in the California Arts Commission 1966-67 exhibition, The Negro in American Art, at UCLA Galleries, the University of California, Davis, the Fine Arts Gallery of San Diego and the Oakland Art Museum. Another impression was illustrated on the front cover of the March 10, 2005 Swann Galleries catalogue for the sale of The James Heald Collection.
