Robt. William's 1966 Watts Sweatshirt Art

"Following the Watts Riot of 1966, Williams was commissioned through Roth Studios to work up the t-shirt design for the black militant group "Us" that appeared on this cover of LIFE Magazine." (caption from Hysteria in Remission book) This cover is great with nice sweatshirt artwork. Nothing M/C related here but its interesting to see what Williams was working on right before Choppers Magazine was born!
