God Bless America Postcard
by Faith Ringgold
Faith Ringgold has been using the American flag in her paintings since 1964 to protest racism and sexism, troubling issues with real world consequences, lying at the very root of American democracy. Her works offer a particular vision of reckoning with the issues of free speech, estrangement, citizenship, and belonging.
4 x 6 inches; made in NYC.
