Art Contest: Margaret Sanger at the Ku Klux Klan Rally

The Margaret Sanger Blogspot is pleased to announce its 1st Annual Margaret Sanger at the Ku Klux Klan Rally Art Contest.

Margaret Sanger's account of her talk at the Ku Klux Klan Rally can be found below from pages 366-367 of Margaret Sanger An Autobiography (1971 reprint by Dover Publications, Inc. of the 1938 original published by W.W. Norton & Company)

When the Margaret Sanger Blogspot performed a google search for images of this historical event, none could be found. Clearly, there is a critical need for artistic recreations of the historic event.

The Big Abortion Industry still holds Margret Sanger out as an icon. Artwork is one more important way to promote the truth about Margaret Sanger.

The rules are simple:

1) Send submissions to the Margaret Sanger Blogspot by providing a link in the comments section of this blog.

2) Submissions will be accepted for two months. With a deadline of March 18, 2005.

3) There is no limit on the number of submissions that one person can make.

4) Nominations made be made onn behalf of others.

5) The art can be anything visual (computer drawings, photography, etc. as opposed to music or poetry) as long as it attempts to recreate Margaret Sanger at the KKK Rally, is original art, and is displayable on the Web. (gif, jpg, swf, etc.).

6) 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place will be announced here on March 28. The comments and views of readers of this blog will be takeninto consideration by the judges.

Please encourage others to participate by e-mailing this information to other por-lifers and bloggers.

I'd make it a link, but don't know how.

Anyway, I found this in the local newspaper archives. Enjoy.

I'm a bit sceptical. That photo looks pretty easy to photoshop to me. And the sender didn't give any credits to what archives the picture was found in.
But a valiant attempt at "art"
