Poster for Radical Historiographies

Poster for Radical Historiographies

Hello everyone,

The poster for Radical Historiographies has now been released with our moderators added to the schedule.

The poster has its roots in the Saturday, January 17, 1970 issue of The Black Panther Black Community News Service. On the cover of that issue, the periodical boldly proclaims, quoting Eldridge Cleaver, “The American Flag and the American Eagle are the true symbols of fascism” and protests the detention of political prisoners.
