There's a famous picture of a mob brutally beating a man in a Birmingham, Ala., bus station hallway in 1961. The man is bystander George Webb, caught in the fury of a crowd of local bigots organized by the Ku Klux Klan, there to greet a Trailways bus carrying seven members of the Congress of Racial Equality. The civil rights organization was en route from Washington, D.C., to New Orleans, deliberately violating the Southern states' laws segregating interstate travelers along the way.
