Albany police chief Laurie Pritchett appeals to a group of ministers from the East and Midwest to "go back to your own cities and cleanse the sins of segregation in your own back yards" during demonstrations in Albany, Georgia, on August 28th, 1962. The racially-mixed group had traveled here to help the integrationist Albany Movement. After telling the group, which marched to a prayer service in front of City Hall "I have no desire to put you in jail" Pritchett ordered their arrest when they refused orders to move on. (UPI PHOTO)
