There are few Americans who would not recognize Charles Morre's most famous photographs. His images of police dogs and fire hoses being turned on demonstrators in Birmingham, Alabama in 1963 became instant symbols, in America and abroad, of the black struggle for equality. This book 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 the book, but there is much more. He also photographed civil rights workers in storefronts and church basements. 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 accompanying text is written by journalist Michael Durham, who worked with Moore on some of his most important stories.
