photo of demonstration at 1964 CORE national convention (3)

Description

"Members of the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE), in Kansas City on July 3, 1964 for a national convention, crowd into the Hotel Muehlebach barber shop just after word was received of President Lyndon B. Johnson's signing the Civil Rights Bill. One member of the organization was refused service and the sit-in resulted. The group disbanded when the hotel management said that it would try to obtain barbers who would cut their hair. "
