Marchers with umbrellas paraded across New Orleans on Thursday in conjunction with the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC). The Poor People's Second Line and Freedom March are shown here. The march originated at the corners of St. Bernard and N. Claiborne at 5pm. It went down Caliborne and Loyola Streets. to Shakespeare Park at Washington and LaSalle. A mass rally was held at the park beginning at 8 pm to mark the end of the 14th annual SCLC Conference in New Orleans.

Ferrotyped prints have a sensitive surface, usually shiny and thinner, because they are put through a press while still wet. Ferrotyping makes the surface of the photograph smoother. Light does not scatter as much on a smoother surface, so this increases contrast. That makes ferrotyped images better for press photography.
