We Are Climbing Freedom's Ladder to Dignity and Brotherhood in '61

[Atlanta]: The Committee on Appeal for Human Rights and The Student--Adult Liaison Committee, [1960]. Circular produced by the Committee on Appeal for Human Rights (COAHR), formed in February, 1960 by a group of Atlanta University Center students who coordinated a variety of sit-ins, boycotts, and non-violent events to demand racial desegregation in Atlanta. The present handbill would have been distributed within the Black community, calling for residents to boycott businesses in the downtown area - essentially a call to keep Black dollars within the Black community. After listing some data regarding the boycott, they conclude with two bullet-points under "This You Should Do: continue to refuse to pay to be segregated, and call 10 of your friends every day and impress upon them the importance of our sacrifice for success in '61." Handbill, with text offset printed in black on white stock, measuring 14cm x 22cm (5.5" x 8 10/16"). Fine.
