Photography Exhibit Capturing Historic Moments of Social Protest

The High Museum of Art in Atlanta, Georgia, holds one of the most significant collections of photographs of the civil rights movement. The works in the online exhibitionCivil Rights Photography” are only a small selection of the collection, which includes more than 300 photographs that document the social protest movement, from the arrest of Rosa Parks to the Freedom Rides to the tumultuous demonstrations of the late 1960s. The city of Atlanta—birthplace of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.—was a hub of civil rights activism and figures prominently in the collection. Visionary leaders such as Dr. King, Congressman John Lewis, and former mayor Ambassador Andrew Young are featured alongside countless unsung heroes. The photographs in this online collection capture the courage and perseverance of individuals who challenged the status quo, armed only with the philosophy of nonviolence and the strength of their convictions.
