Cover Page

This month’s cover features an image of Harold K. Brown leading a protest in downtown San Diego in 1964. Brown was a leader in the civil rights movement in San Diego and a leader of the San Diego chapter of the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE).

The image is part of the Harold K. Brown Papers (1956–2000), held in the Department of Special Collections at the San Diego State University Library. The collection documents Brown’s dedication to civil rights, community economic development, and his professional life, with a heavy emphasis on CORE, Brown’s role in the School Integration Task Force, and his involvement with the Black Economic Development Task Force.
