Leaders Rev. Andrew White, second from left, Rev. Kelly Miller Smith, center left, and Rev. J. Metz Rollins, center right, lead the demonstrators in their segregation protest of the downtown YMCA Feb. 24, 1963. Rev. Smith read a statement that the YMCA is not alone in practicing segregation, but was selected because it symbolizes the fact that segregation still dominates the scene in downtown Nashville.
