Footage shows a young Bernie Sanders arrested during civil rights protest

Democratic presidential hopeful’s campaign confirms that it is the Vermont senator when he was 21 being arrested by two police officers in 1963

Footage has emerged that appears to show Bernie Sanders being arrested during a civil rights protest in Chicago in 1963.

A documentary company, Kartemquin Films, this week published footage online showing two police officers arresting a young student wearing thick-rimmed glasses, resembling those still worn by the Vermont senator and Democratic presidential candidate.

The Chicago Tribune then unearthed from its archive a photograph and a story that noted “Bernard Sanders, 21” as having been among the people arrested and fined at the protest.

“Bernie identified [the photograph] himself,” Tad Devine, a senior Sanders adviser, told the Tribune. “He looked at it, he actually has his student ID from the University of Chicago in his wallet, and he said, ‘Yes, that indeed is [me].”
