QuickTime and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture. Closely study any characters in the cartoon. Based on your knowledge of local and world events, who can be identified? The black bonded hands are those of a slave, representing the black population’s bondage under racial civil rights inequality and, in this case, segregation in the educational system. The white hands breaking the bonds are those of a liberator, an upholder of equality, representing the Supreme Court and decision to end scholastic segregation. Identify any objects or symbols in the cartoon.
