A spectacular collection, this material is all from an African-American who was involved with the 1976 World Hunger Fund Run in Washington D.C. Incredibly, this starred Muhammad Ali and civil rights comedian Dicky Gregory. These are one-of-a-kind pieces that will never be seen anywhere else, we have never seen any of it previously, not one piece.
