Description

In this Eugene Payne political drawing, the "South", symbolized by a woman, looks down nervously at a black puddle labeled "school desegregation." Nixon, portrayed as a gentleman, prepares to lay his coat, be-speckled with dollar signs, on the puddle so the "South" can presumably cross over it safely.
