The American civil rights movement of the 1950s, and 1960s was spurred by innumerable heros who earned small triumphs in the face of epic intolerance and terror. [This book] reveals what it mean to fight the most intractably racist bureaucracy of the Tim Crow era. [In the book, the editor] ha[s] created a vibrant portrait of an activist at work. The result is both a tribute to a civil rights hero and a living testament to the power of grassroots political action to change our lives for the better.-Dust jacket

With a far-ranging selection of striking images and a lively, cogent text, Steven Kasher captures the danger, drama, and bravery of the civil rights movement. After an introduction explaining the vital importance of photography to the movement, the book proceeds from the Montgomery bus boycott through the student, local, and national movements; the big marches in Washington and Selma; Freedom Summer; Malcolm X and Black Power; and the death of Martin Luther King. Each chapter begins with a fast-paced narrative of a crucial event in the movement, complemented by a portfolio of the most effective and evocative photographs of the subject. Ranging from the well known to the rare, these images were shot by photographers including Richard Avedon, Danny Lyon, Charles Moore, Gordon Parks, Dan Weiner, and over fifty others. Many of the pictures are accompanied by thought-provoking remembrances and analysis by various photographers and participants. A concise chronology of the major civil rights events of the period and useful suggestions for additional reading conclude this invaluable, inspiring volume
