In the 1960s, Bob Adelman volunteered as a photographer for the Congress of Racial Equality, granting him access to the most prominent Civil Rights leaders of the time.
He forged ties with legendary activists Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, James Baldwin, and John Lewis. Adelman’s work appeared in major publications during the civil rights period.
Also documented in this exhibition are the Freedom Rides and the 1963 Birmingham demonstrations, when protesters attacked by police dogs and hosed, as well as the 1963 March on Washington, where Martin Luther King’s gave his “I have a Dream” speech, the 1965 Selma-to-Montgomery March, and Martin Luther King Jr.’s funeral. Many photographs on view in the exhibition have never been seen before.
The exhibit will feature 100 black-and-white and color images as well as a series of special programs and events. “The Movement: Bob Adelman and Civil Rights Era Photography” will be on view at NSU Museum Of Art Fort Lauderdale January 19 – May 17, 2014.
