Not My Son Not Your Son
Pennsylvania: Beaver College, 1967. Item #5325
Screenprint. 17 3/4 x 23 in. Signed and editioned 197/200. Very good with crease running horizontally through center.
Screen print from an otherwise unknown artist of a woman of color running in horror with the backdrop of an American flag. The text reads "Not my son not your son," which was the slogan of the Women Strike for Peace anti-war organization. Formed primarily of middle-class white women, the organization was conscious of the advantages their class and race position gave them with regards to the draft; they set up clinics to advise poor and brown folks of their options if drafted and supported draft dodgers.
This poster was made by a student supporter or member of the organization at Beaver College in Pennsylvania. We could not locate any other records on or work by this artist.
