Description
Slides document the mass media response to the poster, which commented on the plight of undocumented and low wage workers. It was displayed on 100 San Diego Transit buses and resulted in controversy. The issues became complicated by the city's refusal to name a convention center after Martin Luther King. This photo is a closeup of the artwork on the back of a San Diego bus.
