Under large font reading "LOVE...Was His Only Weapon," the ad quoted two biblical verses. Leroy Crayton founded Crayton's Southern Sausage Company in Cleveland in 1947 and when he died in 1963 the Call and Post wrote that the business "had grown into a substantial industry serving many states. His special sage-flavored sausage, based on an old Southern recipe once used by his mother, found increasing favor among Ohioans year after year, and the estimate that he became one of Cleveland's wealthiest Negroes is not far off target."
