Original photograph of Jane Fonda at an antiwar demonstration in Washington DC, circa 1970

N.p. N.p., 1970. Vintage oversize borderless photograph of actress Jane Fonda at an antiwar demonstration in Washington DC on May 10, 1970. With the stamp of Sygma photo agency on the verso.

Fonda proved one of Hollywood's most prominent antiwar activists during the Vietnam era, and one of the period's more politically active celebrities, speaking out in support of the Black Panthers and the feminist movement, and working extensively with Vietnam Veterans Against the War. The same year, Fonda would tour with Fred Gardner and Arnold Sutherland in the Free The Army tour, an antiwar road show designed as a counterpoint to Bob Hope's USO shows.

In July 1972, the actress would visit Hanoi with a group of activists, teachers, and pastors, recording a series of broadcasts on Hanoi Radio describing the events of her visit and criticizing US military policy—views which led to extensive backlash from many Americans, and earned her the nickname "Hanoi Jane" among many Vietnam servicemen.

11.75 x 8 inches. Very Good plus, with light creases to the edges.
