If you order something from our online shop today, we thank you! However please note that our Global Distribution Office is based in Pittsburgh, PA. All businesses in the state designated as not "life-sustaining" are currently under order to shut down. We are still assessing how this will effect outgoing orders in the immediate future.
This poster and zine are documents from the Spectres of Liberty public event and action we did in Troy, NY in May 2008. You can read more about the event at Spectresofliberty.com. Like a 19th century broadside, the poster was used as an announcement for the event. The zine contains info about the event, as well as a complete reprinting of Rev. Henry Highland Garnet’s 1843 “An Address to the Slaves of the United States of America,” a call for slaves to rise up and take their own freedom. This speech was so radical at the time that it caused a split between Garnet and other abolitionists such as Frederick Douglass (both of whom were former slaves).
Many artists, including many of us at Justseeds, are facing acute economic consequences as a result of the COVID19 pandemic:
cancelled art fairs, lost opportunities, dwindling sales. If you were thinking about supporting your friendly neighborhood radical artists’ cooperative by picking up a print, poster or book from our shop, now would be a great time, and much appreciated!
For the time being, please enjoy
