Title:Segregated entrances for general store

General store selling hot dogs, cold drinks, wine and beer. Text on signs over doors: "Colored" and "White." Text on reverse: "If you are non-white and find yourself in segregated white territory at meal time, your best bet is to seek out some unpretentious establishment like the above, which caters to white on one side and Negroes on the other." Stetson Kennedy (1916-2011), writer and civil rights activist, collected these photographs during the course of his career fighting for equality throughout the Southern United States.
