Though the lettering and image reflect the influence of rock-dance posters, the figure's political content was intrinsic -- for reclaiming African heritage was already a theme of the Black movement, and the PFP presented itself proudly as an inter-racial party. The deeper content became explicit only as the feminist movement developed. A year later, the naked female form was no longer acceptable as advertisement for progressive politics.
