The background around them is blue and there are black images of people interspersed at the bottom of this area as well. Black text in the top left reads "For Freedom We Shall / Lay Down Our Lives. / The Struggle Continues." Black text below the bright colored section reads "African / Liberation Day" and "Colgate / Fights / Cavities / And / Freedom". These sections of text appear on poster held by the crown of people. Large, yellow text at the bottom of the image reads "Fight Imperialism And / National Oppression / From The Union of South Africa / To The United States of America". There is a quote beginning with "Ours is a continent in revolution against oppression" in bottom left corner. It is attributed to "Chief Albert Luthuli / Late Nobel Peace Laureate".
