Students at the Woolworth Sit-In

Students at the Woolworth Sit-In

This photo, of the Jackson Woolworth sit-in, depicts Professor John Salter, Rev. Ed King (the chaplain of Tougaloo College) and others from the College (including its president, Dr. A.D. Beittel).  At the very end of the counter, wearing the hat, is Ken Toler (a reporter for the Memphis Commercial Appeal).

About 13 students took part in the May 23, 1963 Woolworth lunch-counter sit in.
