Time of Change: The Civil Rights Movement in Photos

Bruce Davidson's new book documents the movement

Photojournalist Bruce Davidson’s stunning black-and-white images documented scenes from the 1960s civil rights movement led by Martin Luther King Jr. — from freedom marches and sit-ins to dilapidated schoolhouses and segregated movie theaters. (Many of those scenes are now highlighted at the Martin Luther King Jr. memorial in the nation's capital.)

In the video above, listen to Davidson recall the movement, his work and its impact as you view pictures from his 2002 book of photographs, Time of Change. Davidson’s work recalls a period of turmoil, anger, uncertainty and inequality as racial issues took center stage in America.
