- FSU student Jack Lieberman speaking at rally in defense of the Quincy Five.
- The "Quincy Five" refers to a group of five African American men from Quincy, Florida who were charged with the murder of deputy sheriff Thomas Revels on September 18, 1970 at Luke's Grocery store in Tallahassee, Florida. They were later exonerated. One of the men, David Keaton, was an 18-year-old star football player with plans to enter the ministry. He maintained he had been threatened, lied to, and beaten until he confessed while in police custody for more than a week. In his confession Keaton implicated Johnnie Frederick who was "clean as a whistle" in the belief that a judge and jury would see the confession was false. The two were convicted, sentenced to life in prison and later released in 1973.
- Activist "Radical Jack" Lieberman taught a noncredit course at the FSU Center for Participant Education entitled "How to make a revolution in the U.S.A.". The course enraged Florida legislators and after a cavalcade of Lieberman-led protests would lead Florida State University president Stanley Marshall to expel Lieberman from FSU.
- Seated at the left is Charles Steele, son of C.K. Steele and organizer of the Defense of the Quincy Five.
- Accompanying note: "FSU. Union Square in front of the bowling alley."
- Photographer John Buckley grew up in Newport, Rhode Island and lived with his family for a time in Canada before moving to Panama City in the early 1950s. It was in Florida schools that he became acutely aware of racism and segregation in the Deep South. These experiences would have a lasting effect on his later life as an activist and photographer. He attended Florida State University from 1963 until 1967 and graduated with a degree in physics. While at FSU, he became deeply involved in political and social movements. In addition to taking pictures, he helped organize workers' strikes in Tallahassee and worked as a platform speaker and photographer for civil rights demonstrations, anti-war rallies, anti-nuclear demonstrations, and women's rights demonstrations. He passed away on December 7, 2008.
