Blast from the Past - Memphis 1968

I was stationed at the Naval Air Technical Training Center located in Millington,Tennessee. None of us had transportation but the Navy provided bus rides into Memphis on the weekends. In the late 1960s there were a number of civil right marches throughout the south. These photos were taken near Beale Street in downtown Memphis. I'm guessing this march was part of  of Martin Luther King's Poor People Campaign.

I wished I had asked this guy what he thought of the March
