|Title:||Joan Fontaine and her Negro Screen Lover|
Black-and-white flyer from 1957 published by American Nationalist, a white supremacist, anti-integration group based in California. The flyer warns that the upcoming movie, Island in the Sun, favorably shows two interracial relationships, one between Joan Fontaine and Harry Belafonte. The flyer encourages boycotting the film, movies produced by Daryl Zanuck or 20th Century Fox, and music by Harry Belafonte. It also recommends insisting that local theaters refuse to show the film and distributing copies of the flyer in the community.
The University of Tennessee Libraries (Knoxville, Tennessee) is the digital publisher.
