Reality Sucks: Press Item of the Day

In JET from September 7, 1961, we find a little notice that somehow very well illustrates the state of The States in the early 1960s. Seen from today's perspective, but probably in its own day as well, the news item appears completely bizarre ... it reports why the black musicians of the AFM in Cincinnati had to face charges of ... racial discrimination, of all things!

JET-magazine, Sept. 7, 1961, p. 62
