1975 Press Photo Joan Little Prayer Service Crowd Wake County Courthouse

Every photo in our collection is an original vintage print from a newspaper or news service archive, not a digital image. Please see our FAQ for more information.

An estimated 80 persons assemble for a prayer service. Little was the first woman in United States history to be acquitted using the defense that she used deadly force to resist sexual assault. Her case also has become classic in legal circles as a pioneering instance of the application of scientific jury selection.
Photo measures 10 x 7.5 in.
