Powerful Days: The Civil Rights Photography of Charles Moore
by Michael S. Durham
Publisher's Description
"Powerful Days brings together the most significant pictures of the civil rights movement in the South from 1958 to 1965. Charles Moore, an Alabama native who understood people on both sides of the struggle, came away from events with the pictures best able to tell the story. His heralded action photographs from the University of Mississippi, Birmingham, Selma, and rural Mississippi are at the heart of this book, but there is much more. Moore also photographed civil rights workers in storefronts and church basements and blacks organizing voter registration drives. He covered Martin Luther King, Jr. in Montgomery long before he was known nationally, and he photographed the white opposition, including George Wallace and the Ku Klux Klan. The images in this book will fascinate those who lived through the 1960s and will help enlighten a younger generation eager to learn about the struggle to overthrow Jim Crow'"--the publisher.
