Description This gallery contains items about Faith Ringgold's life and career from 1964-2016. Archival items in this series include some of the following: awards, honors and honorary doctorates that Ringgold received; biographical information such as chronologies/resumes and short biographies; lectures and interviews she has given; and correspondence from her fans, publishers, and personal acquaintances. Highlights include correspondence, publicity, foreign propaganda, legal documents and petitions related to the Judson 3 trial. In 1970, Ringgold was one of the three artists (along with Jean Toche and Jon Hendricks), who were arrested and charged for desecrating the American flag in 1970 at The People's Flag Show exhibition held at Judson Memorial Church. The three artists became known as the Judson 3. The Judson 3 were found guilty and were given the option to serve one month in prison or pay a $100 fine. All three chose to pay the fine. The Flag Show and its aftermath is just one of many forms of activism that Ringgold has participated in in her lifetime. She has also been active in the feminist movement. This gallery contains documents of the groups that Ringgold was active in from 1981-1986. The gallery also contains records and ephemera of the awards that Ringgold received from 1976-2014, honorary doctorates received from 1986-2008, honors received from 1981-2016, lectures given from 1971-2013, and a collection of video and sound recordings from 1995-2013.
