Rare Original 1960s Civil Rights Hat

An original medium sized hat, 1960s, screen-printed with the powerful words "Black is Beautiful," some toning and light soiling, overall in very good original condition.  From a Bay Area collection of Black Power memorabilia,  most probably distributed and worn in a Black Panther or Black Power Rally around 1968-1970.

The phrase Black is Beautiful was first used by Stokely Carmichael in the mid 1960’s and popularized by James Brown’s Hit single in 1968 "Say it Loud- I’m Black and I’m Proud." (18194)
