Abolish the King Holiday. King’s Record Has Been Sealed By Court Order Until the Year 2027 - Why??? (Truth Tract No. 3)
Marietta, GA: The Thunderbolt, [ca. 1977]. First edition. A call for a repeal of the Martin Luther King holiday based on the accusations that King was a Communist, anti-Vietnam War activist, proponent of violence (his “non-violence” was allegedly part of his “BIG LIE technique”), engager of “weird sexual acts” and intermarriage supporter. Written and published by the long-time racist and anti-Semite, Edward Fields. Later reprinted by the Aryan Nations.
Quad-fold brochure printed in black & red, three images reproduced, including the infamous photograph of King participating in activities at the Highlander Folk School, King addressing an SCLC conference with known Communist lurking in the background, and a photostat of a check to King by the SCEF (a “Red Front” organization). A fine copy. Item #10933
