Creator:Chattanooga News-Free Press
Title:Clipping, Newspaper
Date:1960 June-1960 Aug.

Undated newspaper clipping entitled "Mystery Pickets" features a photograph of two young men walking down a sidewalk, each carrying a sign that protests against recent desegregation actions in Chattanooga. The young men refused to identify themselves to the newspaper reporter. They were in front of Kress' on Market Street. Their signs say "The white man has rights also. Out of the heart of darkness has come this! We want equal schools (Howard High, for instance). We want housing projects. We want freedom of association. We want something for nothing, too."
