About this Item

Rolled "comic" certificate stating that a graduate of an American Airlines affiliated radio and electronic training program has been the recipient of a Lulu" (i.e. acknowledgement of a certain level of expertise). On the top of the certificate is a figure of a nude Black woman (who symbolizes the term lulu) enclosed in a radio tube being "goosed" from behind with a hand full of lightening. Such outrageously racist and sexist symbolism was deemed humorous in the past. Thankfully rare, highly revealing of past norms. VG (edges a bit frayed). Bookseller Inventory # 000208
