Protestors hold signs reading “Free Men All” and “Liberation and Integration,” 1963 See all items with this value
This photograph, captured outside of Leverone Field House during Alabama Governor George Wallace’s visit to Dartmouth on November 5, 1963, depicts Dartmouth students (including Richard Joseph '65) and Upper Valley community members protesting the segregationist's policies and views on race. Signs reading “liberation and integration” and “free men all” are raised in response to the politician’s recent inaugural address, in which Wallace stated, “segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever.” Additional signs reference FEPC, or the Fair Employment Practices Committee, which was established by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1941 to help prevent discrimination against African-Americans in defense and government jobs. See all items with this value
