Night Raiders -- War Is Good Business -- Invest Your Son
An anti-war message from Night Raiders condemning the exploitation of young men for the United States' business of war. Night Raiders is a group of U.S. political stickers from the '60s and ‘70s protesting the Vietnam War and U.S. imperialism, and calling for racial equality among blacks and whites. "Night Raiders" here may refer to military "night riders" and civilian vigilante "Knight Riders" of the Ku Klux Klan, as well as "freedom riders" during the U.S. civil rights era.
The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the Council of Independent Colleges provided funding support for this project.
