I am a Man: Civil Rights Photographs, 1960-1970 Opening Reception

February 8 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

The Center for the Study of the American South will present “I am a Man: Civil Rights Photographs, 1960-1970” through May.

The images in this collection offer a glimpse into the courage and brutality of the 1960s, a decade that unleashed hope for the future as well as profound and tumultuous changes. Viewers will recognize iconic images associated with the Civil Rights Movement, from lunch counter sit-ins to street protests. Collected by an inter-institutional team of researchers led by professor emeritus and former senior associate director of CSAS Bill Ferris, these images were recently hosted at the Pavillon Populaire in Montpellier, France.

Opening reception February 8, 5:30 p.m., Love House & Hutchins Forum.
