Over 50 years ago, current U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders was a student civil rights activist, campaigning in order to defeat racist practices like segregation. During a summer 1963 protest in Chicago, Sanders was arrested for resisting arrest, found guilty and fined $25. Although photos of Sanders around this period are common, here is little before seen footage of what appears to be the Vermont senator getting detained by the police.
