United States of Attica Print
From the Limitations of Now exhibition.
Over the course of 1971-1972, New York artist Faith Ringgold created the United States of Attica, a green, black, and red map that takes its colors from political leader and civil rights activist Marcus Garvey's Black Nationalist Flag. The United States of Attica commemorates the pivotal 1971 uprising by marking the genocides and murders that occurred in the United States from the colonial era, noting 2,260 deaths during the Civil War, 264 deaths in the Battle of Little Bighorn, and 45,564 lives lost during the Vietnam War. Five decades later, Ringgold's work still remains relevant and is a featured interactive element in From the Limitations of Now.
