Title:Mobile Street looking south
Date:1964 July-1964 Aug.
Description:

From the Randall (Herbert) Freedom Summer Photographs. An African-American male teenager in a plastic raincoat walks south under the shop signs of African-American businesses in the 500 block of Mobile Street, across the street from COFO-Hattiesburg project headquarters at 507 Mobile Street in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, during Freedom Summer, 1964. Two of the shop signs advertise the businesses of prominent civil rights activists. Jean's Beauty Shop, located at 510 Mobile Street, was owned by Mrs. Peggy Jean Connor. Sharing the same building was the Shoe Shine Parlor of her father John Henry Gould, also an activist. None of the buildings shown in this photograph remain standing.
