Description: Video footage from the WBAP-TV station in Fort Worth, Texas, to accompany two news stories. The first is about African American man Lloyd G. Austin moving into the all-white block of Judkins street in Fort Worth, Texas. After a day of demonstration and a night of violence protesting, Austin agreed to sell the Judkins home and move into an all-black area; however, when given the sales papers, Austin declined to sign them. Following that is a story about the Labor Day Muscle and Beauty Contest in Fort Worth, Texas, sponsored by Forth Worth and Dallas Health Clubs - male entrants are judged on physique and female contestants are judged on beauty of face and figure.
