Three 1963 Snapshots of the Grand Rapids, Michigan Freedom March in Honor of the Birmingham Bombing Victims [Vernacular Photographs]

Price: $45.00

Quantity: 1 available

Book Condition: Very Good


Three Polaroid snapshots, black and white, 10.5 by 8.3 cm. Very good condition, though two on the snaps are a bit overexposed. All the shots are captioned in pen on the verso. The first reads “Rabbi Essrig [most probably Rabbi Harry Essrig of Grand Rapids’ Temple Emanuel] speaking to Freedom March, Sept., 1963 (In memory of 4 murdered Negro girls).” The second reads “Father Mike, Sept., 1963 / Silent march in memory of four murdered Negro girls.” The final photo reads “Freedom March / Grand Rapids / Sept., 1963.” Rare images of this event. Unfortunately, many of the placards carried by the marchers are washed out. However, two of the signs read “Temple Emanuel: Equal Justice for All” and “B’nai B’rith Supports the Fight for Full Equality.”
