DescriptionFrom a collection of ca. 1960s-‘70s gummed labels and stickers protesting the war in Vietnam and U.S. imperialism, and calling for racial equality among blacks and whites. Quoting several well-known political, military, and religious figures of the day (including Gen. M. B. Ridgeway; Senator Wayne Morse; Senator Frank Church; Senator George McGovern; Gen. Douglas MacArthur; U. Thant; Martin Luther King, Jr.; and President John C. Bennett, Union Theological Seminary, NY, the gummed labels and stickers came in a large envelope from PEACE PRODUCTS, J. S. Kennard, Jr. (Kendall Park, NJ) and addressed to Mr. James T. Wicke, Acting Secy., Human Relations Confrontation (Wasau, WI). Some of the stickers state, "Be a ‘night raider.' Use FAN-SHAN stickers." "Night raiders" here may refer to military "night riders" and civilian vigilante "Knight Riders" of the Ku Klux Klan, as well as "freedom riders" during the U.S. civil rights era.
