29 march 1968 & #throwback thursday
#ThrowbackThursday Students picket in front of the White House on 8 November 1960 to demand that presidential candidates commit to civil rights.
The posters state:
"'Freedom' is spoken 100 Times in 'Great Debates' While Freedom is Denied In Our Lives"
"Discrimination Hurts America"
"Up From Slavery?"
