    Description

    Liberate Puerto Rico Now! Poster.
    20.25" x 29"
    New York; circa 1972

    A poster with a silhouetted figure holding a rifle, standing on a map of Puerto Rico with his fist raised. The text of the poster reads, "The Young Lords Party Calls For A Conference Of All Puerto Rican Students/At Columbia University On September 22 And 23 9AM". The purpose of the conference was marketed to "Establish LIBERATE PUERTO RICO NOW Committees" and "Mobilize for MASS DEMONSTRATIONS at United Nationals Building on Oct. 30 Day of Jayuya." At the lower right corner is the logo for the Young Lords Party.

    Originally founded in Lincoln Park, Chicago as a turf gang, the Young Lords developed into a national and civil rights movement with groups across the nation, including New York City, where this poster originates from. The groups united behind a single goal: self-determination for Puerto Rico.

    Condition: Toned throughout, with chipping and paper loss at the top margin. There are spots of soiling at the right edge. Flattened folds, with a tear at the left side.
