Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Those who grew up conscious of the news in the early 1960s will experience shock after shock of recognition in this mounting of ace photojournalist Davidson's black civil rights work. Here are the freedom rides, marches, voter registration campaigns, and police violence, and here are scenes of the realities that provoked those actions--everyday black life, North and South, from dire poverty to tenuous middle-class status. As with watching the great TV documentary Eyes on the Prize, for those who grew up conscious of what these pictures mean and who recognize faces and settings in them, despite never having met the people or visited the places, it is hard not to become emotional and even teary while scanning them. This is what courage and nobility look like, and this other is what bigotry and xenophobia look like. Presented without captions or reference notes, Davidson's pictures can be appreciated here for their aesthetic quality as never before. Still, their historical importance is never upstaged by their artfulness, which is as it should be. Ray Olson

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By David Enzel VINE VOICE on October 5, 2002
Format: Hardcover
This book is stunningly simple and beautiful. Davidson's photographs capture the essence of the civil rights movement of the 1960s. Each photograph tells a story and is worth pondering. The publisher did a great job reproducing the images. If the topic interests you, this is a "must have" collection of photographs by one of the great photographers of our time.

This book is a poignant plea for equality in the struggle for racial equality in America. Bruce Davidson shows us that it was not even so long ago that segregation set up cultural boundaries that still exist today.

I would have wanted to know that the book was from a public library. Though it is in a good shape, the stamps and library stickers are still visible, and as it is for a gift, this matters to me.
