The "unmarked" Student Non-violent Coordinating Committee field office in Jackson, Mississippi.
An impromptu meeting between local SNCC organizers and SNCC staff from Carbondale, Illinois. Somewhere around Greenwood, Mississippi.
Relaxing in the Greenwood SNCC office.
Some Carbondale, Illinois SNCC members take a moment to "bless" the Thompson Tank in Jackson, Mississippi. The tank, shown here parked in front of the city police station was available for special duty work. Moments later a "friendly" city policeman warned us to move along quickly if we valued our lives.
