General Note

  • The "Quincy Five" refers to a group of five African American men from Quincy, Florida who were charged with the murder of deputy sheriff Khomas Cellus 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.
  • Accompanying note: "FSU. Union Square in front of the bowling alley."
