We Shall Overcome March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom August 28, 1963

[New York]: (National Urban League), [1963]. Good+. Portfolio folder has short closed tears to fore edges, extremity rubs, light foxing, and some separation along lower spine crease.

Scarce souvenir portfolio of collages by Lo Monaco, "created specifically as a memento for those who participated in the historic March on Washington for Freedom and Jobs on August 28, 1963." In all, there are six collage images by Lo Monaco: one printed on the cover of the folder itself and five others on separate sheets inside. There is a printed introductory letter signed in facsimile by March organizers, including Martin Luther King, Jr., A. Philip Randolph, James Farmer, Roy Wilkins, Whitney M. Young, Jr., and Josephus (then the last living slave from the antebellum United States), and a table of contents sheet captioning the 5 Lo Monaco collages. Also included in the folder is an original Xerox sheet of instructions to marchers, indicating assembly areas, the route of the March, and various Washington landmarks. A remarkable souvenir of this historic Civil Rights event.
