  • Description

    Showing a racial demonstration today (15 August) in East St. Louis, Illinois.

    About 175 demonstrators sprawled on the floor of the First National Bank just before closing time...blocking customers who were trying to reach the tellers' windows. The demonstrators were demanding more white collar jobs in banks for Negroes.

    City police hauled the demonstrators out to patrol wagons. Officers say most of them will be booked for disorderly conduct. A few of the leaders may be charged with inciting a riot.
