Behind the Camera: The Photographers of This Light of Ours: Activist Photographers of the Civil Rights Movement
Friday, November 18, 12pm
Free with registration
Join Dr. Deborah Dash Moore, Editor in Chief of the Posen Library of Jewish Culture and Civilization as she explores photographs featured in the special exhibition, This Light of Ours: Activist Photographers of the Civil Rights Movement, and the photographers who risked everything to take them. Photographers like Bob Adelman, Maria Varela, and Matt Heron weren’t just journalists, they were artists and they were activists, using their cameras to document moments that would become historical records of what happened during Freedom Summer in 1964 and beyond. A fascinating discussion for anyone who is interested in photography, journalism, and/or the Civil Rights Movement. Don’t miss it!
