Description:
Print and text from Portfolio consisting of title page, forward, introduction, six prints with accompanying sheet of text, leather portfolio envelope

Label Text:
Both activist and artist, Faith Ringgold has spent her distinguished career fighting for the rights of women and African Americans. In this print, one of six in the portfolio, Ringgold exposes the inconsistencies and omissions in America’s most famous founding document.

Finding inspiration in two 18th-century women, she foregrounds their rebellious words atop tonal silhouettes of each historical figure. On the right, a portrait of Sojourner Truth is overwritten with the text of her speech "Ain't I a Woman?" On the left, the image of Abigail Adams backdrops a letter to her husband imploring him to consider the rights of women in the formation of the new nation.
