Nixon and Martin Luther King, Jr.; text clean, unmarked. Self-wraps, stapled; binding square and tight, offsetting to front cover and page 3, minor shelf wear to front cover, front cover toned. Very Good. The Class-Struggle Road to Negro Equality was a resolution passed by the Socialist Workers Party at its 17th National Convention in 1954; it set forth the reasons why civil rights had become the leading political issue in the United States in the 1950s and presents an analysis of the contending forces in the civil rights conflict. This pamphlet includes the cartoons of Laura Gray (pseudonym for Laura Slobe, 1909-1958). Slobe married George Perle in 1940; the couple joined the Socialist Workers Party in 1942, when she took the pen name Laura Gray. Her drawings appeared in the Socialist Workers Party newspaper, The Militant, beginning in March 1944, and she submitted at least one cartoon a week for the rest of her life. Her drawings were published in Trotskyist publications around the world, and some of her cartoons regarding civil rights were published in the African-American press. Her work has been compared to that of Boardman Robinson, Hugo Gellert, and Robert Minor.
