    "Declare Your Independence" Poster.
    15.5" x 22.5"
    New York; circa 1976

    A poster promoting the 1976 Communist Party candidates Hall (president) & Tyner (vice president), featuring small portraits of the nominees, and a large portrait of Angela Davis over the background of the Declaration of Independence. Inscribed, "Angela Davis urges - Declare your Independence Vote for Hall and Tyner". The poster also includes a statement by Davis, "My name is Angela Davis. I'm speaking to you as a voter. You and I know that the Democratic and Republican parties doublecross us to serve big business. That's why millions do not vote. BUT THIS YEAR YOU CAN VOTE FOR YOUR OWN NEEDS. You can cast a loud, clear vote against big business rip-offs and coverups. The Communist Party candidates fight for a people's program of jobs, education, housing, free health care; to end war and racism. MAKE YOUR VOTE COUNT TOWARD A NEW DIRECTION AND NEW PRIORITIES."
