From the introduction, ''This collection of graphic collages had been created specifically as a memento for those who participated in the historic March on Washington for Freedom and Jobs on August 28, 1963. It depicts man's inhumanity, his cruelty to his fellow being. This memento, we believe, will inspire us to assert man's decency and goodness through an understanding of anguish.'' Below this text are six facsimile signatures, including Martin Luther King, Jr., civil rights figure Roy Wilkins, and a man named Josephus, the last living slave. This portfolio is exceedingly rare and infrequently comes up for sale. There is a set housed in the New York Public Library and another copy at the Library of Congress, where it was displayed during the Library's Voices of Civil Rights exhibition in 2005.
