This is a July 10, 1963 photo of Brooklyn CORE member MIneral Bramletter being arrested at the SUNY Downstate Medical Center demonstration. Brooklyn CORE initiated this demonstration as part of a city wide CORE campaign protesting the lack of Blacks and Latinos in the construction industry.

Bramletter was arrested as part of a group trying to block a cement truck from entering the construction site.

He also participated in the Route 40 Freedom Rides.
