Fifty Years Ago Today
In American Ugliness

Another snapshot of the South. Can't get much uglier than a cracker, can you?
An African American youth demonstrator involved in a sitdown at a private dining club is flipped to the ground
by a white man (right) after dragging the protester from the front of the entrance of the club at Crawfordville,
Georgia, on October 2, 1965. The sign in background says “A Dixie Welcome to Crawfordville.”
