    Description

    Flyer: Black Opposition to the Montgomery Bus Boycott. One printed page, 5.25" x 8.25", [Montgomery], n. d. [circa 1956]. Titled "Are You Tired of Walking?" the flyer expresses opposition to the boycott by criticizing the leaders of the movement, reading:

    "Are You Tired of Walking? Sure you are . . . but we walk while our leaders ride . . . in big cars too! Why? Because they're playing us for suckers while they get rich on our money! No wonder they want to keep the boycott going . . . no wonder they don't tell us there isn't a chance in the world of breaking segregation in Montgomery. Wake Up - Get Smart. We'll be walking to work till Judgment Day if they have their way . . . We'll be losing what friendships we have left and making our situation worse...We'll be the joke of the whole country . . . Don't swallow their mess anymore! Don't be a fool - It's our money & our feet!"

    Unevenly toned with scattered areas of foxing. A 1" x .5" tear at the lower right corner has resulted in minor loss of paper, but not affecting the text.
