n.pub., n.p.. [1971], Poster, approximately 17x22 inches, somewhat amateurishly produced, featuring a large black and white photo of Koen chained to his bed and Kunstler standing beside him, this image taken from a newspaper (backwards text from the other side of the page is faintly visible in the reproduction). There is a long closed tear at the top edge and tape residue on all four corners; minor paper loss from corners. An unfortunately worn copy of a very scarce poster. Koen, who founded the Black Liberators in St. Louis, Missouri in 1968, also led the United Front of Cairo, Illinois. He went on a water fast in July of 1971 after turning himself over to authorities; he had been charged with assaulting a police officer
