    "An Evening with Angela Davis" Broadside.
    10" x 14" (25.4 x 35.56 cm)
    New York; June 19, [1972]

    An advertisement for an appearance of Angela Davis at Madison Square Garden, held by the Angela Davis Legal Defense Fund. The event was marketed as a "Benefit for u All /u Political Prisoners", but also helped to raise funds to pay for Davis' legal debts. In October 1970, Davis was arrested and tried for kidnapping and murder in relation to the death of Judge Harold Haley. She had only just been found not guilty and released on June 4, 1972. At the event Davis, who still feared attempts on her life, stood on the platform behind bulletproof glass. The other speakers at the program included Ossie Davis, Jerry Butler, Carmen McCrae, Pete Seeger, and Ray Barretto.

    Condition: Light toning and soiling around edges. Minor dampstaining at bottom margin. Overall, good.
