Martin Luther King March On Washington 1963 Sclc For Sale
Martin Luther King March on Washington
This postcard depicting a laughing Dr.
Martin Luther King Jr. was made following a benefit sponsored by the American
Guild of Variety Artists, led by comic writer/performer Joey Adams, in support
of the August, 1963 March on Washington. King is wearing a political pin promoting
the March. In an ironic twist, the card’s caption speaks of King as though his
most significant accomplishments were already behind him. In the perspective of
history, however, we know that this March with about a quarter million
participants marked a turning point in the civil rights movement as a result of
the “I Have a Dream” speech by Dr. King in which he delivered his utopian
vision of racial harmony in America.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
King was the most popular Negro leader in America. He was president of the
Southern Christian Leadership Conference and co-pastor of the Ebenezer Baptist
Church in Atlanta, Ga. Dr. King first attracted national attention as president
of the Montgomery, Ala. Improvement Association, where he led a successful
boycott against segregated seating on city buses. He cooperated with the
Alabama Christian Movement for Human Rights in Birmingham to end several phases
of segregation there. (This picture shows Dr. King enjoying a joke by comedian
Joey Adams during AGVA benefit for SCLC for March on Washington.)
An authentic c. 1960s chrome advertising postcard.
