Title:Eleventh Commandment flyer

Organizers of a 1962 selective buying campaign created and posted flyers with the slogan "The Eleventh Commandment: Thou Shalt Stay Out of Downtown Birmingham." This flyer represents collaboration among students at Miles College, Daniel Payne College, and the Booker T. Washington Business College. The student-led campaign encouraged African Americans to boycott stores and restaurants that discriminated against them.

Major funding for this project is provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Supported in part by a grant from the Open Society Institute.
