New York: NAACP, 1922. Broadside measuring 15 x 10 ⅞ inches. Some loss at corners else near fine with fine contrast, light normal wear and free of foxing, very good overall. Very Good. Item #List2405

A striking broadside printed by the NAACP in 1922, likely in support of the Dyer Lynching Bill, which passed the House of Representatives but not the Senate in that year. The NAACP had focused on lynching and anti-lynching legislation from 1916 onward. The organization partnered with Anti-Lynching Crusaders to organize rallies, mobilize volunteers and advertise. This broadside was part of the group’s efforts, and takes issue with rape specifically, debunking the theory that rape could justify the thousands of documented lynchings reported from 1889 to 1922. An important and rare piece, which is often found in lesser condition, with a heavily foxed copy selling at Swann Galleries in 2018 ($4,250).
