[Broadside]: First Class Citizenship Benefits You - Your Children - and Your Community
[No place]: N.A.A.C.P.. [circa 1950]. Partially printed large illustrated broadside. Approximately 22" x 21". Illustrated with a diverse-looking group of African-Americans. Slightly irregular folds, small tears and tack holes at the extremities, very good. A broadside sign-up sheet for African-American parishes (hand-filled out for Our Lady, Queen of Peace Church in Arlington, Virginia) with the signers pledging to pay their poll taxes, register to vote, vote in every election, and join the N.A.A.C.P. The names of 39 parishioners have been filled in by the same hand. Undated, but the first name is that of Rev. Michael Kanda, who headed the Church from 1948-1952. Virginia's poll tax was instituted in 1902 and immediately resulted in about 80% of African-Americans being removed from the rolls. It was rendered invalid by the Voting Rights Act of 1964. .
