Description Black and white photograph of police holding potential arrestees during the Chattanooga sit-ins of February 1960.

Two white boys are arrested on the fourth day of protests. These are the same two boys pictured in 2007.083.001.ll but this view appears to be a view from the street. Everyone was standing behind a car which the boy on the right had set his gloves.

The name "Wilson" is written on the back referring to the photographer, likely Delmont Wilson of the Chattanooga News-Free Press.
