The cartoon depicts the government's decision to send in federal troops to enforce racial integration in Mississippi's public schools in 1962.
The exhibition, which focuses on civil rights struggles in the United States, features 20 panels of cartoons, text and photographs about the work of Block, the syndicated Washington Post political cartoonist who signed his work "Herblock."
His work won him three Pulitzers and he shared a fourth. He was the only living cartoonist to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the only one to see his work displayed in the National Gallery of Art.
The exhibition will remain up through Oct. 2 in the museum at 579 S. Garvin St. The Evansville African American Museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesdays through Saturdays. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for students, with special group rates available.
