Accompanying note: "During a protest against segregated lunch counters in December 1960, FAMU student Nathaniel Williams is pushed from the sidewalk to the street by racist white hoodlums while holding a picket sign that says 'Join Us in Our Fight for Freedom.' To his left is Henry Marion Steele, a high school student who had been arrested earlier at a Woolworth lunch counter. White CORE member Barbara LaCombe climbs into her car to escape the melee."
