Poster encouraging African American voter registration in Maryland. It advertises "a big registration march on the county court house" in Annapolis, arranged by the Anne Arundel County Laymen's Corps. The poster also invites attendees to gather at Carr’s Beach after the march. Located just south of Annapolis, the beach was a popular Chesapeake Bay resort and concert venue for the Black community and was host to many African American musical artists and performers, including the Van Dykes who are featured on the poster.
