This Light of Ours: Activist Photographers of the Civil Rights Movement

Depicting the Southern Freedom Movement through the visions and voices of eight men and one woman who lived and worked in the South between 1963-1967, visitors experience a stirring look at the turmoil and triumphs of a pivotal moment in American history while asking whether “Justice for All” has been achieved today. The exhibition includes 4,000 sq. ft. of videos, immersive, three- dimensional elements and a selection of 157 powerful black-and-white photographs.
