[Oakland]: Committee to Free Gary Tyler, [1977]. First Edition. Single sheet offset printed recto/verso, measuring 14" by 8.5". Very good plus, with mild bleaching and light touches of edgewear, but overall clean and unmarred. (Item ID: 21318)

Flyer for a disco party -- complete with fog machine and light show -- held by the Committee to Free Gary Tyler as a benefit for the ongoing strike at the Rylock factory in Union City, CA. The committee introduces their primary goal on the verso: to free Tyler, the Black teenager convicted with first-degree murder after being attacked by the Ku Klux Klan on his schoolbus in Louisiana. After the flyer explains his case, it goes on to discuss the strike in progress at the Rylock factory, which began after the company (a manufacturer of aluminum doors & windows) introduced cuts to wages and benefits. The Committee argues it is "important to start recognizing the connections between [these] struggles ... [which] all are different fronts of the common struggle against the ruling class." An interesing example of disco used in the service of activism.
