Description:
N.p.: N.p., 1953. Collection of 15 vintage reference and studio still photographs from the controversial and short-lived 1951-1953 television sitcom. Included in the set are five studio still photographs and ten reference photographs. 14 with printed mimeo snipes affixed to the verso, and all 15 with provenance stamps, including five representing the Cleveland Press. Based on the popular 1928-1960 radio show, following the misadventures of two African Americans from Georgia as they try to make it in the big city. The radio show was created and voiced by white actors Charles J. Correll and Freeman F. Gosden, who had previously performed in the minstrel tradition. Aware that viewers would expect to see Black actors in the main roles, television producers cast Spencer Williams, Alvin Childress, and Tim Moore in the main roles, but instructed the actors to keep their voices and speech patterns close to Gosden and Correll's. Having long opposed the radio series for its stereotypical depiction of… Read More

Jacksonville, AR: Little Rock Airforce Base Elementary, 1963. Vintage photograph album for the newly desegregated Little Rock Air Force Base Elementary School in Jacksonville, Arkansas. Album covers the 1962-1963 school year, with "Album / Little Rock Airforce Base Elementary / Jacksonville, Arkansas" in gilt on the front wrapper. The 27 page album includes 27 10 x 8 inch photographs, with two photographs laid in. A poignant glimpse into the actual classrooms at the heart of the battles over integration at one of its many flash points, capturing the period between Brown v. Board of Education (1954) and the Civil Rights Act of 1964. One of the most extreme examples of resistance to the Supreme Court's Brown v. Board of Education ruling was the 1957-1958 response by Arkansas' segregationist governor Orval Faubus. When the "Little Rock Nine" were blocked entry by the Arkansas Army National Guard, deployed by governor Faubus, US President Dwight D. Eisenhower deployed US Army troops to ensure Black… Read More

Description:
Los Angeles: Sawyer Press, 1967. Vintage social awareness poster by white artist Ron Cobb. A left-wing call for civil unrest in the US during 1966 and 1967, a movement that resulted in more than 150 documented race riots that took place during the summer of 1967, a wave that led President Lyndon B. Johnson to establish the National Advisory Commission on Civil Disorders, also known as the Kerner Commission. American-Australian artist Ron Cobb has worked as a cartoonist, film designer and writer. In 1965, at age 28, following a stint in the US Army, Cobb began freelancing for the radical Los Angeles Free Press, and quickly gained notice as one of the finest radical to left-leaning political cartoonists of the mid-1960s and early 1970s. In 1967 Cobb designed the cover for Jefferson Airplane's 1967 album, "After Bathing at Baxter's." Beginning in the 1970s Cobb began work as a highly successful production designer in the film industry. Among the films Cobb contributed to are "Dark Star" (1973),… Read More

Description:
N.p.: N.p., 1966. Two vintage press photographs relating to Civil Rights protests, including one showing Florida A&M University (FAMU) student protesters in the days leading up to the important "Tallahassee Rape Case," and one showing police arresting a young woman during a protest in Long Island. One photograph with a May 5, 1959, date stamp and a newspaper clipping on the verso, and one with a printed mimeo snipe dated July 29, 1966. The first photograph, taken in Florida in early May of 1959, shows FAMU students protesting the kidnapping and rape of a Black student by four white men. The protests drew widespread media attention, and this, combined with threats of University boycotts, led to the assailants being brought to trial days later, on May 6, 1959. The men were convicted and sentenced to life in prison-a landmark decision for Florida, which had up to that point failed to prosecute white sexual violence against Black women. Many of the students at the protest would go on to participate in… Read More

Description:
N.p.: American International Pictures [AIP], 1970. Vintage studio still photograph from the 1970 film. With an American International Pictures stamp to the verso, alongside a cello-taped mimeograph snipe. Featuring a "black militant" being forcibly removed from the room by actor Larry Hagman, while Harlene Jones and Judy Pace look on. A lighthearted comedy and a movie that probably could not be made today, in which Wes Stern fails out of college attempts suicide, only to be saved against his will by university president Larry Hagman, who flunked him. In grumpy retaliation, Stern decides to bed the three women most important to the president: his mistress, his wife, and his daughter. Set against the backdrop of Civil Rights campus upheaval. Shot on location in New Mexico. 8 x 10 inches. Near Fine.
