African Americans March in Protest

(Original Caption) Prominent African Americans residents of the city paraded on Fifth Avenue in protest of the recent East St. Louis riots. Many signs they carried stated their purpose and their desires. Several thousand marchers were in the parade which attracted the attention of many bystanders. The East St. Louis riots occurred several weeks ago. W.E.B. DuBois is shown third from right, in the second row. (Photo by George Rinhart/Corbis via Getty Images)
