Title:Save Brown vs. Board of Education : build the new civil rights movement
Date:2003
Description:

On April 1, 2003, several thousands gathered for a new March on Washington sponsored by The Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, Integration & Immigrant Rights, and Fight for Equality By Any Means Necessary. BAMN, the organization's acronym, were co-defendants in Grutter v. Bollinger, the case which disputed the University of Michigan's admissions policy. They felt many of the gains made by minorities would be lost if the case did not uphold the Brown decision. Many of the protesters carried these signs with the phrase "Save Affirmative Action" and "Save Brown v. Board of Education."

On verso: By Any Means Necessary, Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action & Integration and Fight for Equality By Any Means Necessary.

Poster used in the April 1, 2003 Civil Rights March on Washington.
