Photo of the My Lai massacre in Viet Nam was taken by U.S. combat photographer Ronald L. Haeberle on March 16, 1968.The chilling overlaid text is from a CBS News television interview with U.S. soldier Paul Meadlo who participated in the massacre. Poster was produced by the New York City Art Workers Coalition for the Museum of Modern Art, but MOMA withdrew support at the last minute. AWC printed thousands anyway. [LMC]
