Danny Lyon

Memories of the Southern Civil Rights Movement (The Lyndhurst Series on the South)
by Danny Lyon
Publisher's Description
In the summer of 1962, photographer and filmmaker Danny Lyon, then a 22-year-old University of Chicago student, was jailed in Albany, Georgia, in the cell next to Martin Luther King, Jr. Soon Lyon became the first staff photographer for the Atlanta-based Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), one of the most committed and confrontational civil rights groups. This book tells the story of SNCC in Lyons's pictures, taken on the spot at demonstrations and confrontations, and in his text, written thirty years later. The book is a chronicle of the American Civil Rights movement in its early days and at the height of its power.
