Some Things Don’t Change Much

(Original Caption) A state trooper gets his lumps and is stretched prostrate on the ground between skirmish lines of pro and anti Robesonites at the grounds of the Old Hollow Brook Golf where the Negro baritone Paul Robeson, held his Sunday concert despite protests of veterans groups. The veterans gathered in numbers to parade in protest and 1,200 police were on hand to guard against rioting. Minor outbreaks, such as this one which saw the trooper felled by a rock, occurred all up and down the battle lines as the afternoon wore on.
State troopers beat a man leaving a concert by Paul Robeson at the Old Hollow Brook Golf Club; troopers and police, who were supposed to protect concertgoers from anti-Robeson protesters, joined them in harassing them instead.
