samantha tesner‘s insight:

"Pictured is Dareann on the lap of civil rights leader Dr. James Meredith. Meredith started a solitary March Against Fear from Memphis to Jackson, to protest against racism. Soon after starting his march he was shot by sniper. When they heard the news, other civil rights campaigners, including Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. decided to continue the march in Meredith’s name".  Courtesy of Jeannie Weber and daughter Dareann
