Additional Details

One of a series of five Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee posters featuring the work of important civil rights photographer Danny Lyon. It depicts participants in the March on Washington, 28 August 1963. It was probably produced soon afterward--zip codes were introduced in July 1963, and the SNCC address still has only the earlier two-digit city zone number.
