Photography in the Civil Rights Era

Students posing for a group photo

Students in Professor Joan Bryant’s course, Photography in the Civil Rights Era, pose as they discuss their research at a poster presentation session. Students examined the role of photography in interpreting and documenting social, political, religious and cultural dimensions of America’s Civil Rights era. Students will use this research to curate an exhibition of Civil Rights era photographs, which will open in February 2020 at the Community Folk Art Center. The exhibition photographs are from the George R. Rinhart Collection, one of the largest privately held collections of American photography.
