"Dee Stanelvold, in wheelchair, protests after being hit by police. Police blockaded Telegraph Avenue to prevent a march through Berkeley," states the handwritten note below the image. Ms. Stanelvold is in the foreground of the image; she is wearing a straw cowboy-style hat and eye glasses. Hanging from her neck is tied a handwritten sign that extends from her chest to her shins, which reads, "3 Million Homeless - Lets (sic) Spend a Million on Volleyball." Behind her is a line, two- (or more) deep, of police in riot gear, at ready, stretching across the width of the street. On verso is the photographer's stamp, "Oakland Tribune Photo" and "Wendy Lamm," and the date stamp, "Aug 3 1991." Also on verso is a clipping of the printed caption, with a date stamp, "Sun Aug 11 1991," and which reads, "Dee Stranelvold, in wheelchair, pprpostests (sic) after being hit by police on August 3. Police blockaded Telegraph Avenue to prevent a march through Berkeley. Below the printed text is the handwritten note, "People's (sic) Park."
