“The pickets assembled before the executive mansion at 8 a.m. and formed picket lines on Pennsylvania Avenue. Under instructions from the organizers, each was attired in jacket and tie and conversation was held to a minimum, the orderly processional serving to testify to the seriousness of their purpose. The posters they carried challenged Ike’s stand on civil rights, declared student agreement with integration and supported the southern ‘sit-in’ strikers. A quotation from the Roman historian Tacitus was inscribed on one Williams placard, ‘It is human nature to hate him whom you have injured.’”

–The Williams Record, April 20, 1960
