DescriptionThe image is very dark and out of focus. After the demonstration, the base was covered with graffiti (including the phrase "Black Power"), the soldier's hands and face were black, and a yellow stripe was painted down his back. The trial and demonstration were discussed in a couple of issues of The Southern Courier, which are available online: http://www.southerncourier.org/low-res/Vol2_No51_1966_12_17.pdf and http://www.southerncourier.org/low-res/Vol2_No52_1966_12_24.pdf
