Image of the 1991 African American Women In Defense of Ourselves Ad that appeared in The New York Times

The more than 1600 names of the signatories made a powerful visual statement on the African American Women in Defense of Ourselves ad, designed by Amy E. Bartell, which was later adapted to poster size. Posters were printed in a limited edition by Kitchen Table Women of Color Press and shared with the signatories as a commemoration of their shared time in history.
