OK, once, you, you can be specific, what did you, what was up on the bulletin board, what were some of the, the, the posters and the slogans?


Well, we had he--we had pictures of people like Stokely Carmichael and Rap Brown who were the heroes of the Black Power movement of that day. We had this large poster of Uncle Sam with the slogan, "Uncle Sam wants you, nigga!" which was a, ah, anti-militaristic poster of the day, talking about the fact that the United States government was recruiting young Black males to go and fight in Vietnam for freedom that they did not in fact have living in the United States. Ah, we had various political slogans and historical slogans that were very popular during that time, "Black Power", other slogans of that type.
