From the introduction: "This collection of graphic collages has been created specifically as a memento for those who participated in the historic March on Washington for Freedom and Jobs on August 28, 1963. It depicts man's inhumanity, his cruelty to his fellow human being. This memento, we believe, will inspire us to assert man's decency and goodness through an understanding of anguish." The introduction is signed in facsimile by the march leaders including Martin Luther King Jr., A. Philip Randolph, James Farmer, and Whitney M. Young Jr.
