Community leaders united behind Dr. Carlton Goodlett as he speaks to crowd

About This Item

As Dr. Carlton Goodlett speaks to crowds from the Speakers Platform, black community leaders stand behind him with arms locked in sign of unity. Pictured (left to right): Richard A. Bancroft, San Francisco attorney and member of the BART Board of Directors, Sylvester Brown, aged 29, a leader from Young Men for Action, a Hunter’s Point youth group, who a week earlier led a cleanup effort in Hunters Point before a community festival, Cecil Williams, pastor at Glide Memorial Church, and Donald McCullum, Oakland attorney. Brown was charged with assaulting a police officer, failing to disburse, resisting arrest, and violation of Mulford Act. San Francisco’s first African American supervisor Terry A. Francois and a leader in the Urban League Thomas Gwynn also participated in the march.
