About The Poster:
"In May 1970, students at the University of California, Berkeley, came together to form the Berkeley Political Poster Workshop, which produced hundreds of silkscreen designs. Under the guidance of Malaquias Montoya, a leading figure of the Chicano Art Movement, the workshop class was the largest of its kind in a period that witnessed a proliferation of similar groups, especially on Bay Area campuses. At UC Berkeley, students created vivid and colorful images of resistance in response to the increasing political tumults and traumas, from Nixon’s ordered bombing of Cambodia to the Kent State shootings that occurred just days before the workshop took root."
