N. P. (National Council of Churches? ), 1944. Item #2171
22½” x 17½”. Poster. Very good plus: fresh, with barely perceptible tack holes at corners and a ¼” tear along the top edge; folded as issued. A striking image of people carrying a cross together and depicting twelve different ethnicities. Race Relations Sunday began in 1924 as an attempt to improve relations among all races, though its focus has often been on the relationship between whites and African Americans. Up until 1965, it was sponsored by the National Council of Churches but is now promoted by a number of religious organizations. It's observed on the Sunday nearest Lincoln's birthday, February 12th.
