Bravery at Arlington Virginia Lunch Counter
Non-Violent Action Group (NAG) activist Dion Diamond sits calmly as American Nazi Party Chief George Lincoln Rockwell attacks him with racist remarks. A crowd of white men and boys surrounds the pair.
This scene was a part of a coordinated sit-in movement which occurred across several Arlington lunch counters in June of 1960. Here, Diamond is at the Cherrydale Drug Fair sit-in location.
