This tea towel reproduces artist Faith Ringgold's work American People Series #13: God Bless America (1964), painted during the height of the American Civil Rights movement, where the legal system enforced white prejudice against African Americans. 

Using the symbols in the American flag to protest racism and sexism, Ringgold reckons with issues of American identity and democracy: free speech, estrangement, citizenship, and belonging.

A functional product for use in your kitchen or adorn your wall with it as artwork framed and proudly displayed.

About the Artist

Artist, author, educator, and organizer, Faith Ringgold (b. 1930, New York, NY) is one of the most influential cultural figures of her generation, with a career linking the multi-disciplinary practices of the Harlem Renaissance to the political art of young Black artists working today. For sixty years, Ringgold has drawn from both personal autobiography and collective histories to both document her life as an artist and mother and to amplify the struggles for social justice and equity. From creating some of the most indelible artworks of the civil rights era to challenging accepted hierarchies of art versus craft through her experimental story quilts, Faith Ringgold has produced a body of work that bears witness to the complexity of the American experience.
