Reverend Joe Carter Registering to Vote

"After eight years of trying, the Reverend Joe Carter succeeds in registering to vote then is jeered as he walks down the courthouse steps, St. Francisville, Louisiana. 1964 Joe Carter was the first African American in his parish to register to vote in the twentieth century, this despite the fact that two out of three residents of the parish were black. Once he succeeded in his quest, danger was in the air. I remember someone at the courthouse shouting at me, 'Take his picture, it may be the last one he takes.'"
