Small poster with a black and white photograph of Maya Angelou seated. Over her shirt in white is, "Maya Angelou Inaugural Poem January 20, 1993." The poem reads, "History, despite Its wrenching pain, Cannot be unlived, But if faced with courage, Need not be lived again./ Your armed stuggle for profit Have left collars of waste upon my shore, currents of debris upon my breast. Yet, today I call you to my riverside, If you will study war no more." Verso has the entire poem printed in two columns. This was for the inauguration of president Bill Clinton. [LMC]
