American People #4: The Civil Rights Triangle 1963, by Faith Ringgold.

"The Civil Rights Triangle referred to the church as both the power structure for change and its association with the white male establishment—whick together made up the top structure of the Civil Rights Movement. By the time I came home at the end of the summer, these paintings were finished, and I was planning to do many more in this series. Now I knew where my art was going. I had so many ideas that I barely had time to execute them."
