Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book of photographs, interviews, and biographies pays homage to nine activist photographers associated with the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee who advanced the US civil rights cause by documenting movement actions and backlashes. The photographs poignantly and brilliantly capture key events in the southern movement in the 1960s—protests, memorials for murdered activists and innocent children, exuberant songfests, marches, and bloody encounters…. A must read. Summing Up: Essential." —CHOICE
