The Montgomery Improvement Association (MIA) was formed in December 1955, following arrest of Rosa Parks. The organization is famous for the Montgomery Bus Boycotts of 1955 and 1956. It played a critical role in fighting segregation in the city and produced some of the Civil Rights Movement's most well-known figures. All items have varying degrees of soiling and light toning. Light wear to the corners of the documents. Minor wear and soiling to the envelopes.
This item comes with a Certificate from John Reznikoff, a premier authenticator for both major 3rd party authentication services, PSA and JSA (James Spence Authentications), as well as numerous auction houses.
