Bottom right has "R. Dharuba" printed in black handwriting.

Poster has a black and white geometric shaped background. The lower left has a man raising his fist in the air. The lower right has "Power To The People" in red letters. Below is "N.Y. Panther 21 ARM/ Support the Comittee to Defend the Panther 21." This poster (which appeared in many variants) was designed by Richard Moore (Dharuba Bin Wahad). He, along with 20 other Black Panthers, were accused of planning to terrorize New York City landmarks; all were eventually acquitted in what was up to that point the longest and most expensive criminal court trial in NY city history. He was expelled from the Panthers for failing to appear in court and for statements made to the press. [LMC]
