Vanilla Nightmares #2

Two pages from the June 20,1986, New York Times, drawn on with charcoal and red crayon. At left, a naked, dark-skinned woman is drawn reclining, arms on top of her head, over headlines about South African apartheid. On the right, a bald, dark-skinned face with empty eye sockets is drawn over sports headlines and baseball standings. "Solution Solution The Black Space" is written over the face, with the "c" in black missing or erased.
