Flyer promoting a protest in Exposition Park in Los Angeles in response to the Atlanta child murders of 1979-81.
A rare artifact from organizing around a particularly dark and brutal moment in the racist history of the United States. The serial murders of twenty five Black children in Atlanta over a two year span sparked national outrage and pressure on the Georgia authorities to solve the crimes. Wayne Williams would be arrested two months after this demonstration, and is believed to be responsible for at least 23 of the murders.
"Come join this march against the genocide of black children in America."
