A Commemoration of the Civil Rights Movement: Photography from the High Museum of Art

Photograph by Steve Schapiro from the High Museum of Art

This exhibit, organized by the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, is composed of 22 photographic images captured over the course of the Civil Rights Movement, from 1956-1968. These photographs were taken by various contemporary photographers, including Bob Adelman, Danny Lyon, James Karales, and Steve Schapiro. The High Museum of Art holds one of the most significant collections of photographs of the civil rights movement. The twenty-two works that will be on display in the exhibition are only a small fraction of The High’s collection, which includes more than 250 photographs that document the social protest movement, from Rosa Parks’ arrest to the Freedom Rides to the 1963 march on Washington, DC.
