This soft t-shirt depicts Barbara Jones-Hogu's powerful screenprint Unite, 1971. Barbara Jones-Hogu was a central figure of the Black Arts Movement in Chicago and a founding member of AfriCOBRA (African Commune of Bad Relevant Artists). Working across media, Jones-Hogu created a large body of work centered on the political spirit of the Black arts community. Recognized for her contributions to the major mural project The Wall of Respect (1967) on Chicago’s South Side, she is also closely identified with this print, which offers an example of her signature style, combining figuration with bold, graphic text. 100% cotton.

Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power 19631983 addresses two pivotal decades when conversations about race and identity defined national politics and social ideals. Inspired by the Civil Rights movement, African American artists in the exhibition promoted cultural pride, collective solidarity, and empowerment through powerful, political work. The de Young's presentation uniquely includes pieces closely connected to the San Francisco Bay Area.
