Title

Flyer Advertising a Panel Discussion Celebrating John Brown's 169th Birthday, 1969

Description

Grassroots politics have always run alongside formal electoral politics in the African American community. This 1969 flyer advertises a community-based panel discussion celebrating the white, anti-racist radical, John Brown’s 169th birthday. Ernie Chambers, who is listed on the flyer, would be elected to the Nebraska Unicameral the next year, where he would ultimately become the longest serving state senator in Nebraska’s history.
