Some pickets who "went limp" upon being arrested were, for the most part, drgged to the waiting "paddy wagon." Singer Louis Jordan described similar arrests in his "Saturday Night Fish Fry" as being tossed in the wagon "like potato sacks." (Knoxville News Sentinel, May 11, 1961)
The Beck Cultural Center has provided a selection of its archival photos from the Civil Rights fight in Knoxville (originally printed in the Knoxville News Sentinel). They're collected here in roughly the same chronological order the photos were originally published.
