photo of Brooklyn CORE sitting in overnight at Board of Education

Description

This is a January 29, 1963 photo of Brooklyn CORE sitting in overnight outside the office of acting School Superintendent Bernard Donovan at the Board of Education in Brooklyn.
Standing is Arnold Goldwag (White). There is some dispute as to who the first man sitting is. Corbis Images identifies the man as Bayard Rustin. However, both Walter Neagle and Rachelle Horowitz (East River CORE) who were among those closest to him do not think it is Rustin.
After this man, sitting left to right are: Brooklyn CORE chairman Ollie Leeds (Black), Jerome Bibuld (White), Elaine Bibuld, (Black), Major Owens (Black).
