To create the Birmingham Race Riot Screenprint, Andy Warhol appropriated a May 12, 1963 Life Magazine photograph from the Alabama Civil Rights riot. Up until this point, Andy Warhol had not published any limited editiion screenprints.
To publish Birmingham Race Riot, Andy Warhol collaborated with Norman Ives and Sewell Sillman, two well-known printmakers. For Andy Warhol, creating Birmingham Race Riot was a forerunner to eventually creating hundreds of screenprint editions, something Warhol continued to do right up until his untimely death in 1987.
