Image of demonstrators protesting the imprisonment of fellow protestors by Albany, Georgia police sheriff Laurie Pritchett during the Albany Movement. A white man standing in the street holds a sign that reads, "No civil liberties, no civil rights." An African American woman behind him holds a sign that reads, "1100 arrested in peaceful demonstrations." Several African American observers stand on the sidewalk in the background.
The Albany Movement was a collaborative effort by such civil rights groups as the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) to desegregate the city of Albany during 1961 and 1962.
