    [Southern Christian Leadership Conference]. Broadside: Martin Luther King Jr. Mass Meeting, December 10, [1958]. Measuring 14" x 22.25", this marvelous piece of civil rights history advertises a mass meeting at Rev. William H. Borders' Wheat Street Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia. Speaking at the engagement were Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (whose portrait appears on the front) and other prominent leaders of the Civil Rights Movement such as Rev. Ralph D. Abernathy, Rev. A. L. Davis Jr., Rev Fred L. Shuttlesworth, and Rev. C. K. Steele. Reports from Southern cities such as Tuskegee [Alabama], Norfolk [Virginia], Little Rock [Arkansas], and Shreveport [Louisiana] as well as from the state of Mississippi. Immediately before the meeting, Dr. King signed copies of "his great book 'Stride Toward Freedom.'" Small tears are found scattered around the edges. Spots of wrinkling and soiling in places. Small hole (approximately .5") is seen in the lower right corner. From the Maude Ballou Civil Rights Papers.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
