That the American involvement in the Vietnam War spawned a myriad of protests is hardly a secret. It was the dawning of a new age of questioning, when it became apparent that perhaps one’s government might not be functioning to serve the interests of the majority, but rather to cater to a gluttonous, fearful few. And in the tried and true old friend of disseminating dissenting viewpoints—the poster—the opposition movement found a powerful graphic voice. This skilk-screend poster is part of a series done by students at Rhode Island School of Design in opposition to the war in Vietnam.
