    Sought-after "Equality" Poster, with Theodore Roosevelt and Booker T. Washington Dining at the White House Washington was the first black man to dine at the White House, and TR's gesture set off a firestorm of controversy. Several varieties of pinback buttons honoring or satirizing the event appeared, all now highly prized by collectors (price range from $3,000 to nearly $10,000 each!) This 1904-dated print is definitely a positive image, and was probably a campaign poster for the Progressive Roosevelt. Nice display condition, although it does have some fairly moderate vertical creasing. Beautifully presented in a lovely vintage frame. 20" x 16" and 25" x 21" as framed.
