Old archive footage has emerged of a young Bernie Sanders protesting—and getting arrested—at a civil rights rally in August 1963.
The Sanders campaign has confirmed that the footage of the man wearing a hooded sweatshirt is indeed Bernie Sanders, the New York Times reports.
The footage was provided by a company called Kartemquin Films.
The Chicago Tribune has released a photo of Sanders being arrested at the same rally. At the time, Sanders was a student at the University of Chicago.
