King Color And Character
FILE - In this Sept. 14, 1960 file photo, an unidentified black man eats at a lunch counter in Tampa, Fla. He is one of 70 who took part in breaking segregation barriers at 18 lunch counters in the city. They traveled from store to store, one or two at a time, and received service from white waitresses at counters heretofore reserved for white customers. No incidents were reported. The movement came after a secret meeting of city officials, store managers and representatives of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. (AP Photo/File)
