I received permission from EIS Studios in New York to use this image in my first book, “It was never about a hot dog and a Coke!” From police in riot gear...to Blacks picketing...to the crowd standing behind demonstrators at a lunch counter...to the press reporting on whatever and mostly nothing relevant to the issues of the Civil Rights Movement...to a bus driver...to Mrs. Rosa Parks. These figures are all symbolic of the Civil Rights Movement. Note the images of the two students sitting at the lunch counter. They are the images used by the United States Postal Service when they created the Sit-in Stamp (note inset) in the 2005 Civil Rights Stamp Issue, "To Form A More Perfect Union."
The Struggle Continues!
