A parody poster of the militant black organizations such as the Black Panther Party. 1972 Photograph by Dozier Mobley Dist. by Dick Dagres.

"In many ways, a poster such as this mark[ed] the ending of [civil rights era] widespread race-based political activism in America.

The message put across in this poster is a conflicted one: on the one hand, the image depicts a powerful, fearsome black woman; on the other, her state of undress reveals certain underlying sexist attitudes. This tension is indicative of the time - the Feminist movement was underway, seeking to do away with exploitative images of women."
