Description:

From the Randall (Herbert) Freedom Summer Photographs. A group of Freedom Summer volunteers stand in front of local civil rights leader J.C. Fairley's car, on the bumper of which is a sticker that reads "Register Now." Those identified in the photograph are: Patricia Von Yorck (back to camera), Joseph Ellin (standing across from Von York and wearing glasses), Bob "Soda Pop" Ehrenreich (right of Von Yorck, wearing glasses and a hat), and Terri Shaw "In between Ellin and Ehrenreich). Behind them is a car and house owned by the Beard family and a group of local people standing in the front yard. This photograph was taken at a fish fry given for the volunteers by local civil rights leader Vernon Dahmer on his property in the Kelly Settlement, north of Hattiesburg, Mississippi, on July 4, 1964. The event marked the official beginning of Freedom Summer in Hattiesburg.
