George Lincoln Rockwell (center), Head of the American Nazi Party, at Black Muslim Meeting, Washington, D. C. 1960
Members of the American Nazi Party attended one of the conventions of the Black Muslim movement in America with the aim of supporting its policy of racial segregation. The Nazi Party leader, who is shown here between two bodyguards, threatened Arnold that he would "make a bar of soap" out of her because he found the presence of a Jewish woman photojournalist disturbing.
