General Note

  • In June 1961 Interfaith Freedom Riders challenged segregated interstate buses by traveling from Washington, D.C. to Tallahassee, Florida. After successfully completing the Freedom Ride they had planned to fly home but first decided to test whether or not the group would be served in the segregated airport restaurant. As a result 10 Freedom Riders, later known as the Tallahassee Ten, were arrested for unlawful assembly. They were released on bond following their conviction and sentence later that same month which was followed by about 3 years of legal appeals. The 10 original riders returned to Tallahassee to serve brief jail terms in August 1964 and were released after serving 4 days of their 60-day sentences.
  • Accompanying note: "These imprisoned clergymen, who chose to be jailed on a 60-day sentence rather than pay fines of $500 each, talk to newsmen in the city's jail. The group was arrested in 1961 for a restaurant sit-in demonstration and have been free on $1,000 bonds. All but one of the white and Negro ministers are wearing regulation city prison clothing. Seated (L-R) are Dr. Robert McAfee Brown from Stanford, California; Reverend John W. Collier of Newark, New Jersey; and Rabbi Martin Freedman from Paterson, New Jersey. Standing (L-R) are: Rabbi Israel Dresner from Springfield, New Jersey; Reverend Petty D. McKinney of Nyack, New York; Reverend Robert J. Stone from New York City; Reverend Arthur Warner of New York City; Reverend Arthur L Hardge from New Britain, [Connecticut]; and Reverend Wayne Hartmire Jr., from Culver City, California."
