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.
