PATO BANTON & THE NOW GENERATION
The photographs show a white man pouring a liquid, said to be muriatic acid, into a pool as a young black woman screams and clutches onto a young white man; other swimmers stare over their shoulders as the scene unfolds. The photograph, taken by Horace Cort on June 18, 1964, shocked the nation; many had not realized to what the depths some had sunk to keep whites and blacks separated. President Lyndon B. Johnson had no choice but to address the situation. The following day, the Senate passed the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Within two weeks, the president signed it into law. A civil rights movement based out of St. Augustine, in part led by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., hosted one of the most important battalions that would march the Civil Rights Act into law.
