An important civil rights era American protest poster calling for the release of twenty-one Black Panther members arrested and accused of planned terrorist attacks in New York in 1969. Among the defendants were Afeni Shakur, Lumumba Shakur, Ali Bey Hassan, Michael Tabor, Dhoruba al-Mujahid bin Wahad, Jamal Joseph, Abayama Katara, Baba Odinga, Joan Bird, Robert Collier, Sundiate Acoli, Lonnie Epps, Curtis Powell, Kuwasi Balagoon, Richard Harris, Lee Berry, Lee Roper, and Kwando Kinshasa. The trial eventually collapsed, and the twenty-one members were acquitted of all charges.
