A man stands inside the ruins of a church building. When printed in the N.A.A.C.P. Legal Defense and Education Fund Report, vol.

It had been used as a Freedom School. The arrests of over 75 McComb Negroes followed shortly after this incident and the bombing of the home of Mrs. Alyene Quin the same night... The Pike County sheriff later told Rev. Taylor, pastor of the bombed church, 'You niggers is just bombing one another.'"
