Civil Rights Political Cartoon by Sam Milai

Tags

A political cartoon from 1969 by Pittsburgh Courier cartoonist Sam Milai represents civil rights as the figure from Chabas's September Morn, shivering and surrounded by "unemployment," "riots," and "demagoguery" on one side, and "black power," "white backlash," and the "Nixon administration" on the other.

In the bottom left-hand corner is written, "From Painting by Paul Chabas."

This cartoon first appeared in the September 6, 1969 edition of the Pittsburgh Courier. It was part of the Sam Milai of the Pittsburgh Courier exhibit at the Ohio State University Cartoon Library & Museum.
