Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

On April 6, 1962, Denver Garner (left), Speech instructor, sold female student Jacque Cothran (center) to Tom Erwin (right) as part of a fundraiser “slave auction” held in the Student Center. The “slaves” could only carry books, talk, and eat lunch with their buyers for two days. Nothing else could be asked, and if at any time the buyers said or did something displeasing or unpleasant to the slaves, the slaves would be released from bondage.
