    Cleaver For President of the United States of AmericaPoster.
    17" x 22"
    California; [1968]

    An election poster produced by the Black Panther and Peace & Freedom Parties. Featuring a large black and white portrait of Cleaver with the text, "...power to the PEOPLE...black power to BLACK PEOPLE."
    Eldridge Cleaver joined the Black Panther Party in 1966 after being released from prison. Cleaver was nominated as a presidential candidate two years later, running on the Peace and Freedom Party ticket. Although he was not technically old enough to run (not meeting the requisite 35 years of age), Cleaver still appeared on a number of the ballots.

    Condition: Light toning and wear at the edges and corners. Else very good.
