A rare picture of the march by civil rights activists on the new Tuscaloosa County Courthouse on April 23, 1964. The march came after T. Y. Rogers called a meeting at the First African Baptist Church on April 20, 1964. The plan was designed to fight the city's insistence on discriminatory signage specifically in the new courthouse.
