The "Negro of 'Inflooence'" [Broadside]. [African-Americans]. [North Carolina]. Hull, F[red] A., Engraver. A Sample of Democratic White Supremacy in North Carolina. Judge Winston's Dream of Riding the District with George H. White, the Negro of "Inflooence." Are the People of North Carolina Going To Elect Judge Francis D. Winston Lieutenant-Governor? [Asheville?] North Carolina]: F.A. Hull, 1904. 10" x 14" lithographed pictorial broadside, text in upper left and lower right corner. Moderate toning, negligible chipping and light staining to upper right corner, image not affected. $1,850. * A scathing racist attack against Judge Francis D. Winston, the Democratic candidate for Lieutenant Governor of North Carolina. He is seen riding in a coach alongside a grotesquely caricatured George Henry White, Republican congressman from North Carolina, 1897-1901, a symbol of Reconstruction and the last African-American congressman to survive the beginning of the Jim Crow era. The coachman is depicted in a similar manner. Winston is accused, in a letter supposedly written in 1890 and transcribed here, of seeking White's influence with African-American voters to win his judgeship. Winston asks White to promote his candidacy and suggests the "possibility of riding the district with you." Hull was a civic leader, politician and artist in Ashville, N.C.
