Civil Rights Rally

Black students from Alabama State College stage a mass rally on the steps of the Alabama State Capitol. The 1,000 students sang the Lord's Prayer and the National Anthem. The civil rights rally appeared to be in defiance of Governor John Patterson's warning the day before that if Blacks continued to demonstrate in Montgomery, "someone is likely to get killed." The State Capitol was closed for Mardi Gras. (Photo by Bettmann Archive/Getty Images)
