Photograph (positive image of a negative) of SNCC staffer Marion Davidson sits on the wooden bed of a truck and a man stands beside her as they relax at the fish fry given for the volunteers by local civil rights leader Vernon Dahmer on his property in the Kelly Settlement, to the north of Hattiesburg, Mississippi, on July 4, 1964. The gathering marked the official beginning of Freedom Summer in Hattiesburg.
