Title:WSB-TV newsfilm clip of civil rights movements and Albany city officials entering the Federal Building in Albany, Georgia, 1962 July
Date:1962 July
Description:

In this silent WSB newsfilm clip, several groups of civil rights movement leaders and Albany city officials are shown entering the Albany Post Office and Federal Courthouse in Albany, Georgia, late in July 1962. Individuals identified in the segment include Albany police chief Laurie Pritchett; Dr. Martin Luther King and Reverend Ralph D. Abernathy of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC); and Charles Jones, local leader of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) efforts. Also shown are attorneys Donald L. Hollowell and C. B. King with his head still bandaged from a beating he received July 28 from Dougherty County Sheriff D. C. Campbell. On Saturday, July 21, 1962, federal district judge J. Robert Elliott granted a temporary restraining order against King, Abernathy, and Dr. William G. Anderson, president of the Albany Movement, barring further mass demonstrations in Albany. Judge Elliott scheduled a hearing regarding the restraining order for July 30. Civil rights leaders were able to get chief federal appellate court judge Elbert P. Tuttle to dissolve the restraining order on the movement on Tuesday, July 24. King, Abernathy, and Anderson were arrested with other demonstrators July 27 for praying outside city hall. Anderson was bailed out of jail so that he could appear on "Meet the Press" July 28; while King and Abernathy remained in jail until Friday, August 10. Judge Elliott's hearing regarding future demonstrations began July 30 and recessed Wednesday, August 8; no date was set to resume the hearing.
