Counter protest to white supremacist rally

Description

On May 6, 1991, Portlanders organized a counter-protest to a white supremacist rally held in front of City Hall by supporters of KKK member Tom Metzger. (Metzger and his organization the White American Political Association were implicated in the murder of Mulugeta Seraw, killed by skinheads in 1988.) The dozen or so white supremacists were greeted by hundreds of counter-protestors. This photograph was originally published in The Skanner News.
