On the back:

After the accidental deaths of two African American sanitation workers, the black community in Memphis, Tennessee prepared a major strike to fight for the right to unionize. Placards bearing the words "I Am A Man" in bold red letters were printed for the sanitation workers strike. It was there, before 1,300 workers gathered at the Mason Temple in Memphis, that Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr, delivered his famous "I've Been to the Mountaintop" speech. The following day, the civil rights icon was assassinated. Dr. King's riveting speech and the memory of the posters bearing "I AM A Man" continue to inspire civil rights activists.
