Additional Details

"Somebody Paid the Price for Your Right: Register / Vote," featuring an uncredited photograph by Flip Schulke from the 1963 March on Washington. "Make it Real: Register / Vote." We trace neither of these posters in OCLC, though the Library of Congress and the Smithsonian hold examples of each. Another poster from this series with the same "Somebody Paid the Price" title depicts Martin Luther King, suggesting that they were issued after his assassination.
