Exhibition: I Am A Man (Photographs of the Civil Rights Movement)

September 1, 2023 8:00 am - October 20, 2023 5:00 pm

The 1960–1970 decade was a momentous time for the civil rights movement in the American South. It was a historic decade that unleashed both hope for the future and profound change as public spaces were desegregated and as African Americans secured their right to vote. I AM A MAN: Photographs of the Civil Rights Movement, 1960–1970 displays a wide range of photographs taken by amateurs, local photojournalists, and internationally known photographers. Together, they provide a vivid visual story of the evolution of the civil rights movement and shed light on the movement’s integration in daily living in the American South.

A Program of ExhibitsUSA, a national division of Mid-America Arts Alliance and the National Endowment for the Arts.
