    Description

    I'd Rather Be Red Than Dead (Old School Inc., 1965). Rolled, Very Fine-. Poster (24.25" X 36.25"). Miscellaneous.
    A twist on the anti-communist catchphrase "Better Dead Than Red" that was popularized during Barry Goldwater's unsuccessful presidential campaign, this poster takes the anti-Native American slur "Red" and instead uses it to emphasize the values of peace and racial diversity. An unrestored poster with bright color and a clean overall appearance. It may have general signs of use, such as slight edge wear, mild creases, minor chips, or small tears.
