Photo Collection: De Facto Segregation by Faith Ringgold

Faith did this cartoon for The Nation in 1994 in connection with the anniversary of the Supreme Court Decision on Brown versus the Board of Education. They paid for it but chose not to print it. It thus became one of my prized possessions. I love it more and more as time goes on. It is very particularly the Ringgold brand of humor. This is also what I mean by the idea that some pictures talk, and some people talk in pictures. Maybe we should do this more.
