Broadsides: "Wash. D.C. July 4, 1971 Smoke-In - Let's twist again like we did last summer!" [3 Variants]
N.P.: Youth International Party, 1971. Attractive set of broadsides promoting the second annual 4th of July Smoke-In on the Washington, D.C. Mall, a Yippie-sponsored event which began the previous year. Each broadside features a photo of a young man smoking a joint while holding a burning American flag, with the Chubby Checker lyric "Let's twist again like we did last summer!" printed at lower margin. The latter two variants have event information printed on verso, along with a large cartoon, an article titled "It Happened Last July 4th," and another titled "Lee Otis: 1 Joint = 30 Years." Includes a series of quotes and a photograph of Oris, once the leader of Houston SNCC, who in 1968 was sentenced to 30 years in federal prison by an all-white jury for handing a single joint to an undercover police officer. Not listed in OCLC, though we find examples held by the LC (variant a) and Wisconsin Historical Society (variant c). A3. Three illustrated broadsides, offset lithographed in black and in colors on white stock, each measuring 28cm x 17cm (11" x 17"); offered here in three variant colors - a) purple, pink, and brown, b) black and white, and c) rainbow-colored, the first printed on recto only, with the latter two printed on recto and verso. Faint horizontal fold at center of each broadside, some trivial edgewear and tiny creases, with some faint spotting to extremities of variant b - overall Near Fine.
