J.T. Johnson and Al Lingo
On June 18, 1964, J.T. Johnson (L) and Al Lingo (R) were two of several protesters who jumped into the whites only pool at the Monson Motor Lodge in St. Augustine, Florida.
At StoryCorps, they talked about how the owner of the hotel tried to force them out by pouring acid into the pool.
