Catalogue note:
At the beginning of Chapter 15 of General Powell’s memoir “My American Journey,” he writes that shortly after he took over as Commander in Chief at Fort McPherson, Georgia, he hung this poster in his office. He wanted it there “to remind me, and everyone who sat in that room, of the leading role the Army had played in defending freedom and advancing racial justice.”
