March 11, 1965. Twelve protestors stage a sit-in demonstration at the White House in relation to civil rights.
From the White House Diary:
“On March 11, 1965, President Johnson devoted much of the day to discussing the civil rights demonstrations in Selma, Alabama. Just after noon, the President met with the National Newspaper Publishers Association, a group of Negro publishers, in the Cabinet Room and talked with them about the situation in Selma. Late in the morning a small group of civil rights demonstrators staged a sit-in in the East Wing of the White House. Several hours later policemen removed the demonstrators.”
