Stop Busing Stickers-For Congress-Ronnie Thompson-Georgia
Item #: NEW-0013404

Click image to enlarge
Five stickers used in the campaign of Ronnie Thompson, former Mayor of  Macon.  He also ran for Governor of Georgia.  He was quite a colorful politician.  You can read about him in the Wikipedia entry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ronnie_Thompson_(Georgia_politician)  
Busing was a rather unpopular method of achieving integration even though it worked.  It involved having children leave their neighborhood schools for long bus rides and in many cases it was the black children who were the ones who got to ride the longest.  Civil Rights-Segregation 

Can be mailed in an envelope for the price of a stamp so ignore the invoice cost if it doesn't reflect that.

1986 Poster-Martin Luther King Holiday
Item #: NEW-009466

Click image to enlarge
This great poster measures 30 by 24 inches. Creasing in upper right hand corner area, probably could be smoothed out with proper framing. There is an small area of damage in the middle area which unfortunately happened on my watch. This area is magnified in the scan. I think it could be touched up for framing. This poster celebrates the passage of a holiday for Martin Luther King which was enacted in 1986. Various states were reluctant to implement it calling the holiday by different names but by the year 2000 all states celebrated Martin Luther King Day.
