Arrested in Jackson, Mississippi

In the bottom image below, that is Larry Hunter being arrested, Albert Lee Dunn has already been arrested (leaning over to the left), I am seated pretending to read and David Myers is behind me to the right.

I sat down on the bench in the “Colored” waiting room, and was soon approached by a policeman who announced: “Y’all have to move on.” I asked why, and he responded with the same “Y’all have to move on.” After I again asked why, he then announced “Y’all under arrest.”  Here is the arrest record from 28 May 1961.
