n.p. the author, [1977-?]. 18.25x23.25 inch poster with four columns of text (Small's poem, dated 1977), against a backdrop depicting South African warriors with spears behind barbed wire. Very good; signed and dated in 1992 by the poet at lower left edge using his full name (which is abbreviated to Bert on the printed poster). Small, a doctor, ran a medical clinic for the Black Panther Party.

Poem contrasts life under apartheid with life before South Africa's colonization. "Hey Soweto, we hear you. / Shake your chains sleeping giant. / Wake up to rattle the world." The poster was designed by Malaquias Montoya.
