(CIVIL RIGHTS--SEGREGATION.) Smith, Jack; artist. Handbill opposing a St. Louis referendum which imposed segregation on housing. Illustrated handbill, 8 1/2 x 7 3/4 inches; moderate foxing, minor wear at corners. St. Louis, MO, 
An overseer shouts "Back to the slave quarters!" as he cracks the whip of "negro segregation" at an African-American family. The ghost of Lincoln intones "No nation can endure half-slave and half-free." This handbill urges us to "Vote NO on segregation, Feb. 29" and asks "Shall St. Louis be the Slave Master?" The effort failed; the referendum passed. St. Louis became the first city in the United States to mandate racial segregation by neighborhood. None traced at auction or in OCLC.
