  • Accompanying note: "Protesting against the arrest of 23 of their classmates earlier today when they took part in lunch counter sit-in demonstrations at McCrory's and Woolworth's department stores, these Negro students from Florida A. & M. University carry signs reading 'Give us back our students' and 'We will not fight mobs'. About 250 students took part in the march, which reportedly was brought under control by tear gas.
