“The Two Platforms”

A racist political campaign poster from the 1866 Pennsylvania gubernatorial election. The poster specifically characterizes Democratic candidate Hiester Clymer’s white supremacist platform as “for the White Man,” represented here by the idealized head of a young man. In contrast a stereotyped black head represents Clymer’s opponent John W. Geary’s platform, “for the Negro.”
