    Description

    Cleaver for President Poster.
    17" x 22"
    Los Angeles, California; 1968

    A political campaign poster for the Peace and Freedom Party. The poster urges the public to vote on November 5, 1968 for Cleaver for President and Peggy Terry for Vice President. Their campaign slogan was "All Power to the People".

    Eldridge Cleaver was nominated for President in 1968, despite being technically ineligible to run since he was not 35 years old. Cleaver was a prominent figure in the African-American community as the Minister of Information of the Black Panther Party. Peggy Terry was a Chicago activist. The two ran on a platform of Black liberation and the withdrawal from Vietnam. Two states, California and Utah, refused to list Cleaver on the ballot. Richard Nixon ultimately won the presidential election.

    Condition: Light toning at edges, with some minor areas of foxing. Two small areas of staining along left vertical edge. Else, good.
