Gerald Williams (American, born 1941). Nation Time, 1969.
Artwork by Gerald Williams was featured in our exhibition Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power. Williams’s Nation Time 1969 depicts leaders of the 1960s and 1970s paired with vernacular messages the group African Commune of Bad Relevant Artists (AfriCOBRA) wanted to impress upon black people on the streets. Nation Time features warm multicolor text that reads ‘DON’T BE JIVIN UNITE’ painted in what Barbara Jones-Hogu called, in the 1973 Inaugurating AfriCOBRA: History, Philosophy and Aesthetics manifesto, ‘pure vivid colors of the sun and nature. Colors that shine on Black people’.
