Omaha, Nebraska's DePorres Club Members Protesting Discriminatory Hiring Practices.
In 1953, the DePorres Club mounted a successful campaign against Reed’s Ice Cream for discriminatory hiring practices. Here, members of the organization picket outside of Reed’s and talk to community members about their protest. Note the sign held by one of the demonstrators, which draws on African American military service to make an argument for equality at home.
