In my last year of high school I studied the American civil rights movement in depth. It's always been a fragment of history that has intrigued me. These photographs by Bruce Davidson are still relevant today. Their pertinence and emotional power lies with their depiction of everyday folk.
The period from 1961 - 1965 was the defining era of the American civil rights movement. As a participant and observer of this struggle for racial equality, Bruce Davidson chronicled the demonstrations, the protests, the aftermath of the bombings, and the social and political tumult that arose out of the conflict. "Time of Change" is a testament to the everyday lives of the people who fought against accepted social norms of segregation, poverty, and discrimination.
