Atlanta, Winter. As demonstrators block traffic to protest segregation and unfair hiring practices in downtown Atlanta, a mob begins to abuse them with kicks, blows and burning cigarettes. An anonymous woman walking by with a box of typing paper confronts the mob and for a while holds them at bay. When someone yells, “If you feel that way, why don’t you marry one of them?” she sits down and joins the demonstrators.
