"Do Not Buy Where You Will Not Be Hired"
Floyd McKissick Papers (4930), Southern Historical Collection, Wilson Library, UNC Chapel Hill.
This photograph was found in the black attorney’s papers, Floyd McKissick. The actual date of the photograph is unknown, but it was found in a folder with other photographs from McKissick’s work with the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and its Youth Chapter in Durham, North Carolina in the early 1960s. The individuals pictured in the photograph are also unknown.
Pictured are two African American males holding signs in front of a self service A&P Super Market. The signs say: “DO NOT BUY WHERE YOU WILL NOT BE HIRED” with a small “NAACP” in the bottom right corner. African Americans in Durham who participated in such civil rights groups often used sit-ins and boycotts to protest segregation and other unfair practices towards racial minorities. These two men in the photograph were boycotting this A&P Super Market because they were not allowed to be hired for employment due to their skin color. In order to discourage other African Americans from giving their money and business to a place that would not hire these black men, they stood out in front of the store with signs to let other blacks know of their injustices.

The enemy keeps us ignorant. Not half-hazardly but by calculated plans.
Go and pick up any textbook that you have that you had as a child. Go now and pick up the textbooks that your children have. The only time Africa is mentioned is that she gave slaves to America, and that the slaves who came from Africa to America should be very happy because the price of slavery, and the oppression of America is better than the ‘barbaric’ life which we lived in Africa. ‘Thank you.’ ‘Very much.’ ‘America.’
You will read in all your textbooks about all the great things the Germans did, the contributions of the French to world humanity, the contributions of the British to world humanity, the contributions of the Italians to world humanity. But Africa? No contributions at all.
They say in the very beginning, the struggle here begins with a fight against ignorance. Not only does the enemy make you ignorant, but then he makes you want to love ignorance and hate knowledge!
If at first you don’t succeed, redefine success.
