Unidentified men can be seen in the background sitting behind Louis and Rowe.

A pencil and ink sketch by Muhammad Ali of the courtroom in which he was tried and convicted for failing to report for military duty after being drafted. The scene is drawn in pencil then traced over and filled in with black ink. The judge sits at the bench in the top center of the scene, with the jury seated on the far left side and spectators along the entire bottom edge. Lawyers, defendants, and prosecutors sit at two tables in the center. A person sitting at the right table has a thought bubble coming from their head with what appears to be a burning building in the bubble. Muhammad Ali signed the drawing in the lower right above the crowd of spectators. The drawing is framed in a wooden frame painted gold that hangs with a single wire strung horizontally across the center of the reverse.
This poster features a prominent photographed of Muhammad Ali at its center. Above and below the portrait are three lines of very large lettering which read: [IT'S YOUR FIRGHT / VOTE / IT'S THE GREATEST EQUALIZER]. Beneath the third line of text are two lines of hand written lettering in capitalized green letters which read: [Hampton Voter Registration / Place: Mercury Mall Date: Sept. 25 12:00-5:00 pm]. Beneath the hand written text is a smaller line of printed black text which reads: [The Voter Education Project, 52 Fairlie St. N.W., Atlanta, Georgia 30303 (404) 522-7495]. The poster is creased in a regular pattern that suggests it was once stored in a rolled position; the top third section of the poster's verso is browned darker than the bottom two-thirds.
