Large Civil Rights March in Forsyth County

An estimated 20,000 civil rights demonstrators marched in Cumming, Ga. – a week after opponents halted a smaller march in the county seat of overwhelmingly white Forsyth County. Atlanta civil rights activist Hosea Williams organized the march, which was protested by J.B. Stoner, David Duke, and others.
