1958, Hi res scan
Issue: #[nn]
Published: [1958], Price: 0.10 USD [0.00 FREE], Pages: 16, Editing: Alfred Hassler
Color: Color Dimensions: 6 3/4" X 10 1/4" Paper Stock: Newsprint Binding: Saddle-stitched Publishing Format: One-shot; Giveaway
Notes: Teaches methods of non-violent civil disobedience; noted in many history books on Civil Rights Movement; inspired the Woolworth Lunch Counter sit-in; Blacks told to memorize and destroy comic to avoid being lynched for possession of it. In about 2011, this comic was reprinted by the Fellowship of Reconciliation in an edition that is very difficult to distinguish from the original. The easiest way to spot a reprint is to examine the empty space on the back cover under magnification; if a half-tone pattern can be distinguished then the paper is not actually yellowed but the yellowing effect is printed. Publication date changed to 1958 based on content, which describes Dr. King as a 29-year-old minister. King's 29th birthday was January 15, 1958. Apparently, Spanish and Arabic versions exist. John Lewis stated that this comic was instrumental in driving him to civil rights activism, and to his decision, half a century later, to collaborate on creating the "March" graphic novel trilogy.
