“I did a second poster, All Power to the People (1970) trying to please the members of the Committee to Defend the Panthers. I gave a family, a mother and father, a rifle, and the little boy a stick to let them defend themselves. And I put on there ‘Power to the People.’ Again they said ‘No! We don’t like either one.’ I asked them, ‘Well, what would you like to see?’. And they said, ‘Kill Whitey!’ I replied, ‘Well, I’m sorry, that’s not my style and that’s not what I want to do. OK, I’ll try again and see what we can come up with.’ I was never able to please them. I think people have an idea that they could make it themselves, which of course they never did! I think they did not understand that political art is art. It’s not something you make to throw away or to despise.”~Faith Ringgold
