No DC Police Brutality: 1941
Images related to rallies and marches sponsored by the Citizens Committee Against Police Brutality in Washington in September, 1941.

The protests were organized after four African Americans were shot to death by D.C. police in three separate incidents.

The committee was a broad based group originally organized by the National Negro Congress and supported by the NAACP, Elks, Interdenominational Ministers Alliance and a number of other groups.
