Book Description: 1937. No binding. Eight murals or friezes depicting African-American children as characters from nursery rhymes. Meant to be hung or in a continuous pattern, the mural consists of eight oil paintings on canvas, each of which measures 19" x 82", and if hung together, they would total about 55 feet long. Each canvas is currently gently rolled, with a protective tissue wrapper. There are small cracks in the paint, with no loss and they are overall fine. A remarkable and enigmatic mural illustrating African-American children in themes from various nursery rhymes including the Mother Goose rhymes, (especially from "There was an Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe"), themes from Alice in Wonderland, Little Black Sambo, and others. Some of the panels are signed and/or dated in 1937 by Marion Mackenzie Heywood, a Philadelphia based artist, of whom we know little. Bookseller Inventory # 385231

Book Description: 1992. No binding. Autographed Card Signed by Rodney King accompanied by a fair copy of Judge John G. Davies's comments as the presiding judge at the trial of the Los Angeles Police Officers who assaulted King. The card, measuring 6" x 4", is fine and Inscribed: "Thanks for your support! Rodney G. King 1992." The undated fair copy appears printed by a laser printer on heavier than average paper stock and is Signed at the bottom: "John G. Davies." The beating of King and the subsequent trial in which a jury acquitted the police officers of major wrong doing is credited in inciting the infamous Los Angeles Riots as racial tension boiled over despite pleas from King himself for order. In the following months, Federal prosecutors brought new charges against the exonerated police officers resulting in the statement from Davies presented here that states, in brief, that the officers were involved in extenuating circumstance in the Rodney King arrest, are not a threat to society, and are unfairly being targeted by federal prosecutors but that "the court is bound by law" to comply. A compelling pair of autographs connected to a defining moment of race relations in 20th Century America. Bookseller Inventory # 387293

Book Description: 1970. No binding. Color crayon, charcoal, and graphite portrait on artists' wove drawing paper. Unsigned and undated. Measuring 17.75" x 11.75". Paper perforated along the top edge, neatly removed from a sketchbook and tape remnants on verso, very good. Colorful folk art portrait of St. Martin de Porres, canonized in 1962 and patron saint of interracial harmony. De Porres is depicted in the habit of a lay brother of the Dominican Order and is shown with his typical hagiographic attributes, food for the poor and a crucifix-like emblem. St. Martin de Porres (1579--1639) was born in Peru of mixed parentage, the son of a Spanish nobleman and a freed slave of African and possibly Native American descent. Known for his simplicity and for his charity to the poor, de Porres is shown with a rayed nimbus proffering a basket of vegetables and a bottle. The artist has chosen not to explicitly show the saint's more typical attribute of a crucifix, but to suggest only its reflection in the bottle. The viewer is thus transformed into the Christ-like object of the saint's charity. Interesting and somewhat sophisticated folk art portrait of one of the earliest saints of the New World.

Book Description: 1965. No binding. The three-page summary of the unsuccessful first Selma to Montgomery March containing eyewitness accounts of the marchers being beaten and tear-gassed by local authorities. Two photomechanically reproduced folio sheets (white and yellow), one printed both sides. 3pp. Each sheet with three horizontal folds with tiny nicks at the folds and some scattered light creasing, very good. A detailed account of the first historic Selma to Montgomery March held on March 7, 1965 in which a group of roughly 600 Civil Rights marchers, led by Congressman John Lewis, then chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, and Hosea Williams of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, were attacked with tear gas and billy clubs by police after crossing the Edmund Pettus Bridge. The brutal beating of the peaceful marchers was broadcast nationwide tipping mainstream opinion in favor of the Civil Right Movement and helping President Johnson get the important Voting Rights Act of 1965 passed that summer.This document is a description of events compiled from various SNCC representatives on the scene in Selma as events unfolded, including Larry Fox, James Austen, and Billy Bailey. It begins at 3 p.m. with the marchers assembling and a description of who is leading the procession and how they are to act if their path is blocked. The marchers were stopped just after crossing the Edmund Pettus Bridge by a group of local police, state troopers and deputized white citizens. The scene quickly descended into chaos: "State Trooper are throwing tear gas on them. A few are running back. A few are being blinded by tear gas. Somebody got hurt -- don't know who," with description of brutality against the marchers: "Police are beating people on the street. Oh, man, they're just picking them up and putting them in ambulances. People are getting hurt pretty bad." The accounts continue after marchers retreat over the bridge to the safety of the Brown Chapel Church. Witnesses describe men on horseback whipping people in the streets and how some fellow marchers are "ready to fight" and have "started throwing bricks at the State Troopers." The account ends with police blocking off the street in front of the church to restrict marcher's movement and with news from Good Samaritan Hospital that no one was shot but that "John Lewis is still in the emergency room and will have to stay over night."A frightening and vivid collection of first person accounts of a pivotal moment in the struggle for Civil Rights. *OCLC* locates no copies of this document and only one reference to it online from 1965 new story published in *The Harvard Crimson*.
