Description

This is a 1963 photo of Mary Hamilton in West Feliciana Parish, Louisiana. She is standing next to Rev. Joe Carter, the first Black person to vote in that parish in 61 years because of Jim Crow segregation laws. Whites had retaliated by terrorizing those few Blacks who attempted to register with burning crosses, threats of violence and physical violence itself, as well as the loss of home and livelihood.
