    all the mugshot photos of all the Black people arrested in the 1956 Montgomery (AL) Bus Boycott(including the Rev Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks). Found by an jail administrator(happened to Black) in boxes in a basement. They are slated to be included in the Rosa Parks exhibit at Troy State University (along with a replica of the bus in 1956).

    forgot to include-somebody overwrote on King's photo of his subsequent death,like a tombstone. I hope it goes in as is.
