"In 1939, five young men walked into a public library in Alexandria, VA.
A few hours later, all of them were arrested. They were guilty of one crime only; they were black"
The quote above from the film "Out of Obscurity" sums up this historic act of peaceful resistance known as the 1939 Sit-in, at the Alexandria Library.
This exhibit commemorates 75 years since the Library Sit-in. It honors Samuel W. Tucker and the five young African American men who took an early step for the modern civil rights movement.
