Seattle King County NAACP's 100th anniversary

A large, sign-carrying crowd stood peacefully in the Fifth Avenue Plaza at City Hall this afternoon during a demonstration in support of an open-housing ordinance. The crowd was friendly and relaxed. A "sit-in" by about 35 young persons began in Mayor Clinton's office after the demonstration. The "sit-in" was conducted by the Central District Youth Club. Picture taken July 1, 1963.
