Wadsworth Jarrell made this important print during his first year teaching at Howard University in 1972. AfriCOBRA members often made prints based upon their paintings, making these popular visual messages affordable and accessible to a wider audience. Jarrell's screenprint is made after his same-titled 1971 painting; his now iconic portrait of Angela Davis is in the permanent collection of the Brooklyn Museum.
