Creation Date



One of 22 protest posters created by students at Columbia College Chicago who called themselves the "Columbia Collective". They were produced in 1970 as reaction to United States actions at Kent State and the conflicts in Cambodia and Vietnam; some were exhibited in a Chicago, Illinois exhibit, Student Strike Posters. Image text reads "May '70" and graphic depicts a soldier pointing a gun toward the viewer with a figure of Death behind him who is wearing a uniform with SS on it and headgear with ensignia of a bird with outstreched wings standing atop a Nazi cross symbol and its bony hand clasped on top of the front soldier's helmet. Light orange background and black ink.
