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]. Handbill, with text offset printed in black on white stock, measuring 14cm x 22cm (5.5" x 8 10/16"). Fine.

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."
