African Liberation Movement Posters
from the Collection of David H. Anthony
The posters in this collection represent the intensity of the conflicts being waged in those years, when combatants and their supporters weighed in for the long haul. This exhibit represents a cross-section of politically engaged poster art from the African Revolution. While not comprehensive, it is evocative of the spirit of those times and the commitment of supporters of African majority rule.
—David H. Anthony, Associate Professor of History
This exhibit also features material from Special Collections on the anti-apartheid/divestment movement at UCSC, and related books from the University Library’s collection. We would like to thank the Library’s Special Collections and Preservation departments for their assistance, and library staff member Cheryl Dandridge for the loan of several books from her personal collection.
