Description

Civil rights activists march to the Tuscaloosa County Courthouse protesting the "whites only" water fountains and restrooms in the new courthouse.

The march came after T. Y. Rogers called a meeting at the First African Baptist Church on April 20, 1964. The march was part of the plan designed to fight the city's insistence on discriminatory signage specifically in the new courthouse.
