The series includes three originals: "I Am A Man", "Equal Rights For All", and "One Man One Vote".
Limited edition prints of the three images will be sold as a suite, with only 63 sets available to commemorate the 1963 March On Washington. Each limited edition print will be signed and numbered.

The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation creates, identifies, analyzes and disseminates information critical to advancing African Americans and people of African descent towards equity in economics, health and education.
