BOOK / REVOLUTION IN BLACK AND WHITE: PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS ERA BY ERNEST C. WITHERS / RICHARD CAHAN AND MICHAEL WILLIAMS
'Ernest C. Withers documented the momentous, and often dangerous, upheaval of America's civil rights movement across the South from the late 1940s through the 1960s. His camera also captured the rise of rock 'n' roll, R&B, and the end of Negro League Baseball. Along the way, he created a singular record of day-to-day African American life.
Wither's life churned with struggles, triumphs, and personal scandals. Drawing on dozens of interviews and deep archival research, this book is the first to set the full range of his work into context. It is work that speaks to America today.' Richard Cahan and Andrew Young
