Power to the Vanguard: Original Printed Materials from Revolutionary Movements Around the World (1963-1987) From the Collection of Brad Duncan
Power to the Vanguard: Original Printed Materials from Revolutionary Movements Around the World (1963-1987) From the Collection of Brad Duncan features rare prints, broadsides, pamphlets and ephemera produced by revolutionary Left movements and liberation struggles from El Salvador to Ireland to Mozambique. These remarkable paper items reflect the anti-colonial movements of Africa and Asia, the Black liberation movement in the U.S., the guerrilla insurgencies of Latin America, the influence of Marxism, and the women's liberation movement. The exhibition highlights the way these movements were intertwined during the tumultuous two decades that followed the early 1960s.
These unique printed materials are from the vast personal collection of Brad Duncan, a former Detroiter and a rare book specialist at the Kislak Center for Special Collections, Rare Books and Manuscripts at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. Duncan is a nationally recognized authority on the periodicals and publications of the international Left.
