Memories of the Southern Civil Rights Mo

Author(s): Lyon Danny


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.
