Description

This is a photo of the subway stall-in which was part of the World's Fair Stall-In carried out by Harlem CORE, Brooklyn CORE and Bronx CORE on April 22, 1964. These actions were not supported by National CORE.

The CORE members here are currently unidentified. The CORE members are attempting to stall the trains on the subway platform in order to create confusion and frustrate those attempting to enter the World's Fair. This tactic was used in order to bring attention to the issue of racial discrimination in the construction industry.

The photo illustrates CORE's blocking technique which was widely used against the construction industry, in particular. It takes place on the New York-Flushing train in the Jackson Heights section of Queens in New York.
