The San Francisco State College Strike Collection


The San Francisco State University Library acquired twenty-four large, multicolored, silk-screened posters done by the Art Department faculty and students during the strike. The posters are concerned with various aspects of the strike, as well as higher education and civil rights. A contemporary newspaper article humorously quotes the following price per poster:

Students -- $2.50

Faculty --- $5.00

Pigs ----- $25.00
