MLK Highlight Becomes Memphis News Story


Monday's issue of Memphis newspaper The Commercial Appeal included an article about the I Am A Man poster in Swann's auction of Printed & Manuscript African Americana to be held on Thursday.

The poster, which was carried by striking Memphis sanitation workers in 1968 as they marched with Martin Luther King, Jr., is a valuable artifact today, and the Commercial Appeal article looks into the origins of the poster, as well as its rarity.

For more information on the poster, check out lot 210 in Thursday's sale.
