Neatly folded, fine copy. Two headlines "Cazzie Russell Playing Guard" and "Ft. Hood Revolt." Pictured on the front page is basketball star Cazzie Russell in his National Guard fatigues. As the Anderson Valley Advertiser put it, "That summer, 43 Black GIs stationed at Fort Hood refused to be deployed against protesters at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago." The lower left corner of the poster shows a map of downtown Chicago showing the locations of demonstrations. Keeping their case secret, the Ft Hood 43 were quietly put through court-martial proceedings. They were also beaten by members of the Military Police. (Anderson Valley Advertiser.) ; 22 x 34"; 1 pp
