Poster has five light blue silhouettes of hands. The center hand is a clenched fist. Above is "We Want Black Power" printed in light blue and black lettering. This is a fake poster made for the 1995 Hollywood film "Panther." It's politically inaccurate, since the Black Panther Party was not a Black nationalist organization and never used the slogan "Black power." The hands are from a 1965 book cover, _Negroes in American History_. [LMC]
