We couldn’t pick just one photograph!
On July 2, 1964 United States President Lyndon B. Johnson signed into law the Civil Rights Act. In honor of the invoking of this landmark law, a photograph of Septima Poinsette Clark, a prominent Civil Rights activist and eventual vice president of the Charleston National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), also seemed appropriate. 
"1000 Women to Honor Rosa Parks’ event in Detroit, MI, 1961. Photo includes (L to R) Ms. Towles, Rosa Parks, Coretta King, Spetima Clark, Annelle Ponder."
From the Septima Poinsette Clark Scrapbook held by Avery Research Center at the College of Charleston.
