Photo of the day

Loved this In Focus collection of photos from 1963.  Apparently the world was quite black and white then.  Love this great Civil Rights image I had never seen before:

Mrs. Gloria Richardson, head of the Cambridge Nonviolent Action Committee, pushes a National Guardsman’s bayonet aside as she moves among a crowd of African Americans to convince them to disperse, in Cambridge, Maryland, on July 21, 1963. (AP Photo)
