The Movement: Bob Adelman and Civil Rights Era Photography

By Sola Agustsson

January 13, 2014

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.

Many photographs on view in the exhibition have never been seen before.
