Civil Rights Integration Housing 1957

Residents of Levittown, Penn., are shown during a rally to protest plans by William Myers, a black man, to move into a home in the all-white community of 60,000 persons, Aug. 17, 1957. Addressing the rally is James Newell, who lives near Myers home. Man standing next to him at right is not identified. Despite protests and subsequent demonstrations that brought police to the scene, Myers moved his family into the home. Today, Levittown is quiet. Harassment of the Myers family is banned by a temporary court order obtained by the state. But there still is a strong undercurrent of feeling among some residents about the incident.
