Integrated John Roberts Public Housing

This photograph, taken in the late 1960s, shows several residents of the John Roberts Homes housing project in Alexandria meeting in one of their yards. Originally constructed as segregated housing reserved solely for white residents, the project had recently been integrated at the time the picture was taken.
