Exhibition Annotation:
The slogan, “For all these rights we’ve just begun to fight” comes from Ben Shahn's 1946 "Register Vote" poster made for the CIO. It also features flags with diverse demands, but in Shahn’s there is only one worker visible among the sea of flags, while the UFW consciously includes a Mexican American, African American, and white workers showing their mutual solidarity by holding the banners together.
