Description : Abstract
A group of fifty apartheid protesters picket the offices of Deak Perera (financial institution) on Franklin Street in Boston. The protesters carry signs; some protesters wear masks. The group chants anti-apartheid slogans. The protesters oppose the sale of krugerrands at the offices of Deak Perera. Graylan Ellis-Hagler (Church of the United Community) is one of the protest leaders. Ellis-Hagler speaks to a security guard inside of the Deak Perera offices. A group of protesters confront a woman doing business in the offices. She cuts them off and walks away. Two customers conduct business at a teller's window. A small group of protesters confer in front of a teller's window. One of the protest leaders announces to the group outside that the demonstration will come to an end. The leader notes that the protesters have turned away six customers in the past half-hour. The crowd cheers and begins to chant. A few protesters taunt two customers who exit the Deak Perera offices. The leader gives information about the next day's demonstration.
