It is certainly refreshing they did not mind copying there posters without worrying about infringement. Based on life 52 years later, I don't think this ended well for the Citizen's Council. I bet they hated it when they found out Charlie Pride was black!

What a fabulous roadmap to rock-and-roll for the few kids that had missed the news.

"Permission is granted to re-print this circular"

I would start by changing the spelling of "Loouisiana" to the more standard "Louisiana."
