She appears in front of a white circle on a gray background.

"Revolutionary Communist Youth Brigade" is printed in black font at bottom left. The pages on the back of the poster show three articles: On page 16, a story continued from page five titled "Working Class...," and on page 13, "The Press Lies, The Draft: A Case Study," and "Ali: People''s Champ Becomes Louisville Lip."
