#107 - Barack Obama Estimate: $4,000+

"We stand on his shoulders!"—Obama honors MLK

Fantastic issue of Ebony magazine from May 1968 with a cover featuring the late Martin Luther King, Jr., 182 pages, 10 x 13.25, signed on the front cover in black felt tip as president, "We stand on his shoulders! Barack Obama." Issued one month after King's assassination, this important magazine contains two articles honoring the fallen leader of the Civil Rights Movement: 'I've Been to the Mountaintop,' a chronicle of the King's life by Phyl Garland, and 'The Martyrdom of Martin Luther King Jr.,' a biographical eulogy by his former classmate, Ebony editor Lerone Bennett, Jr. In very good to fine condition, with general handling wear, and light creasing and scratching to the partially detached cover. Accompanied by a ticket stub from the Jacksonville event at which President Obama signed the magazine on July 19, 2012, and a full letter of authenticity from JSA. A supremely desirable piece connecting America's first black president with the civil rights leader whose fight for equality made his political career possible.
