Description

Article caption:
"NAACP Leaders March:
NAACP leaders lead off in a march down Congress Street Saturday afternoon [22 April 1967]. From left are Kivie Kaplan, of Newton, MA, national president; Donald Fisher, of Portland, president of the local area branch; Boston attorney Keesler H. Montgomery, regional conference president, and Gerald Talbot, of Portland, chairman of the regional conference."

"Freedom Can't Wait:
Despite a police refusal to issue a march permit before 5:30 p.m. Saturday, a group of NAACP members, here for a regional convention, started down Congress Street at 2 p.m.; hence the sign proclaiming that 'Freedom Can't Wait.'
Police refusal was based on an agreement with merchants that no marches will be allowed on Congress Street Saturday afternoon."
