Martin Luther King March On Washington 1963 Sclc

Martin Luther King March on Washington 1963 SCLC

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.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dr. 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.
