Longtime political activist, writer, speaker, teacher, and cultural icon Angela Davis celebrated her 70th birthday on January 26. Angela’s bold, outspoken politics combined with her striking image (and that classic afro!) inspired many memorable posters, graphics, and magazine covers. Here are 10 of our favorites. For more information on the visual image of Angela Davis, read Trailing Angela Davis, from FBI Flyers to “Radical Chic” Art, via Collectors Weekly, which was the source for many of these images.
