    Smash Racism Student Rally Poster.
    18.5" x 25.25"
    [Boston]; [1970]

    A rally poster featuring the image of a black fist alongside a white fist. The rally time is marked for 4:30 on Wednesday (no date) at the Statehouse. On verso, written in pencil, reads "May 21 / 1st but will be for FRI".

    During the student strikes of 1970, many university groups produced their own posters. The Boston Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) acted as a propaganda and poster production center for the strikers from May 4 until June. These silkscreen posters were produced in limited quantity; some designs only had one or two copies while others were made in 25-35 copy batches.

    Condition: Dampstaining at the vertical edges, with light soiling and wear to the corners.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
