Abstract 

This article discusses the arrest and sentencing of two female college students, one white, one African-American, who were freed on bail while they appealed their sentences. Along with another friend, the students had been arrested on the steps of Capitol Street Methodist Church in Jackson, Mississippi, for trying to enter the all-white church; they were charged with trespassing and disturbing public worship. The girls appealed their resulting twelve-month jail sentences and $1000 fines. The father of one of the girls stated that their appeal would be fought by the Mississippi chapter of the N.A.A.C.P.
