Come Together: Interethnic Collaborations for Equity and Social Change in the 1970s
This online exhibition features selected 1970s vintage posters by San Francisco Bay Area activist artists who represent a
spirit of cultural diversity, social equity/social change, and international human rights from various perspectives.
Revealed in the imagery are significant interethnic collaborations in which shared interests of African
American, Asian American, Chicano/Latino, and Native American communities are united within individual posters.
The posters are drawn from major graphic art collections housed in the California Ethnic and Multicultural
Archives (CEMA) in the UCSB Library.
