Civil Rights School Integration

Eleanor Butler and her daughter Leonora, 6, are escorted by Lynbrook, Long Island, New York police at the Davison Avenue School in Lynbrook, New York, Sept. 4, 1963 after her arrest. Police arrested five black parents and a Long Island civil rights official for loitering as they staged a sit-in at the predominantly white elementary school. Principal Ray Blank of the Davison Avenue School, to which the demonstrators want more black students assigned, told them the Board of Education directed the arrests. Blank refused to admit the children without prescribed student transfer cards. At this point parents began the sit-in. (AP Photo/Jack Kanthal)
