This is the front page of the May 13, 1963 issue of the Winnipeg Free Press newspaper featuring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with American “Stars and Bars” artistically creating a jail cell.  This was based on his historic incarceration in Birmingham (the month before) where he penned the “Letter from Birmingham Jail”.
