early 1960s, black and white student
members of the Congress of Racial
Equality (CORE), CRAG, the NAACP,
and other organizations used non-violent
direct action tactics to protest housing,
employment, and school segregation.
Demonstrators arrested in 1963 after a week-long sit-in at the
Mayor’s Office. They demanded black appointees for the Human Rights Commission and
a Fair Housing Law.
