"Enemies of the Dream" cartoon printed in Greenfield Recorder newspaper

(c) Pocumtuck Valley Memorial Association, Deerfield MA. All rights reserved.
Contact us for information about using this image.

The cartoon, published in the Greenfield Recorder just days after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, captures the feelings of many Americans at the time. A sharp contrast is drawn between King's nonviolent message and the events surrounding his death. In a style typical of the great cartoonist Herblock, King holds a book containing his ideals and confronts the tools of violence; a white hand with a gun and a black hand holding a torch. The contrast is heightened by the title, a reference to King's famous "I Have a Dream" Speech.
