Vietnam protest poster 5

click to enlarge

An ORIGINAL FIRST PRINTING of this silkscreen poster. Printed in 1968 by students at the Rhode Island School of Design, this poster is part of a series created to protest the Vietnam War. This particular poster features a gun with bayonet raised to the sky with the word America? written across the top. Supplies were donated by concerned supporters and the students ultimately made 8 posters in the series. They were sold for a few dollars that year, many being hung around college campuses and really wherever the students could slap them onto a wall. A complete collection of this series is held in the Library of Congress and is considered to be one of the more important examples of young activism in USA's history. In super condition mounted and framed.
