Boo-Hooray Catalog #5: Black Cultures in Post-War America
Boo-Hooray is proud to present our fifth antiquarian catalog, dedicated to some of the cultural, political, and artistic trajectories of Black people in the post-war United States. This catalog follows the internationalization of Black freedom movements, the confluence of political and cultural, and the influence of Black freedom struggles on political mass movements of the time. A manuscript letter from the mother of one of the victims of the 1963 Birmingham church bombing is also included, as well as a handmade sign from the 1960s, and flyers and handbills from small towns around the world, and both well-known and lesser-known artists’ responses to the political struggles for freedom. This catalog follows the growth of the civil rights movement and the spread of Black Americans political struggles and arts across the world. This catalog also notably includes a program from the church where both Martin Luther King Jr. and his father ministered, signed by both, from the week he won the Nobel Peace Prize.
