Los Angeles: Civil Rights Congress, . A 9” x 12” broadside printed on newsprint. Newsprint browning with some light chipping along the right edge. No record for this broadside in WorldCat - at least by title.
One of a number of broadsides issued by the Civil Rights Congress on behalf Smith Act victims. The CRC warns: “First The Communists, Next the Trade Unions, Negroes, Jews, and All Liberals” and advertises a mass rally held on Nov. 7, 1948 in Los Angeles to hear attorney Ben Margolis and family members of those arrested. A scarce surviving example of a fragile broadside protesting the beginning of the Second Red Scare. Item #06118
