Panel Six in 'Abolitionistory' is a reminder of the turbulent yet progressive mid-century era. Included in the 'movement' are the Tuskegee airmen, Naval hero Dorie Miller and the African American women of the Army Nurse Corps. Headlines abound in Panel Six with statements from Max Roach, the Montgomery Advertiser and an expose on Truman's abolishing segregation in the Armed Forces. Tribute is also paid to Dizzy Gillespie, Nat King Cole, Mahalia Jackson, Louis Armstrong and the Little Rock Nine.
