Creator:Wilson, Delmont
Title:Print, Photographic
Date:1960 Feb.

Black and white photograph of a crowd in front of Lovemans during the Chattanooga sit-ins of February 1960. A large crowd was gathered around Lovemans department store, probably on the fourth day of protests. A majority of the crowd appeared to be young white men, though a few were female and there were a few older men present. An older African American man talked to a couple young white men in the foreground. A few policemen's hats are visible above the large crowd. A cross-hair symbol is present in the bottom of the photograph. It may have been edited in later, but its reason for placement is unclear. The name "Wilson" is written on the back referring to the photographer, likely Delmont Wilson of the Chattanooga News-Free Press.
