Poster issued in support of Black Panther leaders wanted by the U.S. government, 1970. Printer is uncredited, but there is a 1970 copyright at bottom right, and the artwork is signed "Mohamed K." Pictures H. Rap Brown, Angela Davis, and Eldridge Cleaver, who are wanted for "Faith Beauty Integrity" (the first letters of which are FBI). The reward offered is, "Love - Peace - Happiness."

At the time, Brown was in hiding after escaping custody following the bombing of the court house in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he was set to go on trial for inciting a riot; Davis was a fugitive from justice in California, accused of conspiracy in the murder of a Marin County judge; and Cleaver had jumped bail and fled to Africa. All were on the FBI's Most Wanted list.

One of the iconic posters of the Black Power movement.
