[Printing Plate]: Hear Martin Luther King. Rally on Human Rights Day, December 10 to Benefit South African Victims of Apartheid...
American Committee on Africa New York: American Committee on Africa [1965]. Large printing plate. Measuring 12.25" 16.25". Zinc[?] printing plate mounted on hardwood (probably cherry). A little rubbing else very near fine; eyelet and wire on verso presumably used to hang on a wall. Printing plate for an apparently lost poster. The rally at Hunter College featured Dr. King, Leon Bibb, Miriam Makeba, H. E. Achkar Marof (Guinea's Representative to the U.N. and head of the U.N. Committee on Apartheid), Pete Seeger, and an unnamed South African exile. The goal of the event was to raise money for the legal defense of political prisoners and support the families of South African men in jail, which at the time would have included Nelson Mandela. While a leaflet for the event exists with similar (but not identical) text but with different layout, we could find no evidence of examples of this larger poster or broadside. A unique artifact showing the intersection of the Civil Rights and Anti-Apartheid Movements.
