    FYIHere is an interesting and fairly brief review of the Poll Tax repeal activities.

    Flipping through the comic book pages led me to research the topic, and I thought others here might be interested as well…

    I like the NAACP organizer whose drawn like a superhero action figure.

    Interesting that fifty years ago(roughly), the drive was to become a influential voting bloc, with no suggestion of an African American running for office him/herself.

    Fascinating. Apparently Larry Lieber (Stan Lee’s brother) did the art.

    And that guy is what I see in my head when I think about “The Man.”

    Good ol’ powerful interests.
