Change Author / Owner : Image of a civil rights protest outside Greenville City Hall
A black-and-white film negative featuring the image of civil rights protesters in Greenville, Mississippi. The image features a line of men and women walking single file in two lines, while holding handmade protest signs, while a line of people face them, visible only in shadows. Just right of center, a woman in a light-colored coat and scarf holds a sign reading, [We REJECT / the / "GRADE / A- / YEAR" / PLAN]. Behind her are two men whose signs are only partially visible, followed by a woman carrying a sign stating, [GREENVILLE / DEMERIT / AWARD / POOR / HOUSING].
