January 2017 Auction Ends Thursday, January 26th, 5pm Pacific
Montgomery Bus Boycott opposition flyer, encouraging the black community to end the boycott. Printed document, circa 1956, reads in full, ''Are you tired of walking? Sure you are. But we walk while our leaders ride. In big cars too. Why? Because they're playing us for suckers while they get rich on our money! No wonder they want to keep the boycott going. No wonder they don't tell us there isn't a chance in the world of breaking segregation in Montgomery. Wake Up - Get Smart. We'll be walking to work till Judgment Day if they have their way. We'll be losing what friendships we have left and making our situation worse. We'll be the joke of the whole country. Don't swallow their mess anymore! Don't be a fool - It's our money & our feet.'' Measures 5.25'' x 8.25''. Foxing, toning and a small chip to lower right corner, else near fine. From the collection of Maude Ballou, Martin Luther King Jr.'s close friend and personal secretary.
