Description

In Memories of the Southern Civil RightsMovement, Danny


Lyon tells the compelling story of how a handful of


dedicated young people, both black and white,


forged one of the most successful grassroots organizations


in American history. The book depicts some


of the most violent and dramatic moments of


Civil Rights Movement, including Black Monday in


Danville, Virginia; the aftermath of the bombing of


the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham;


the March on Washington in 1964; and the


Mississippi Freedom Summer of 1962. Lyon's photos


were taken when he was the first sta photographer


for the StudentNonviolent Coordinating Committee


(SNCC). The book also includes a selection of historic


SNCC documents such as press releases, telephone


logs, letters, and minutes of meetings. Pictures,


eyewitness reports, and text take the reader inside


the Civil Rights Movement, creating both a work of


art and an authentic work of history.
