  • Description

    This is 20 feet of film of Negro students from Morgan State College in Baltimore, Maryland, 95 miles north of Washington, picketing a segregated theatre.

    The pickets were arrested - altogether 413, both Negroes and whites - since demonstrations began at the Northwood Theatre last Friday (15 February). Of that total, 387 were from Morgan State College, about 15 percent of the school's total enrolment.

    The Negroes, however, won their pint. Today (Thursday, 21 February), Mayor Philip H. Goodman of Baltimore announced that the operators of the theatre had agreed to integrate the movie house if students stop picketing.
