Students Assemble outside Steak and Shake
Students assemble outside a Champaign County Steak and Shake to protest its discriminatory serving practices. The student-community interracial committee helped plan and peacefully picket the establishment. Signs make comment on Illini track-star Herb McKenley earning national acclaim but would still be denied a seat due to being Black.
