About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

Thanks

I thank everyone who took part in the civil rights movement. They made things possible, in my life, which would not have been possible, without their sacrifice and perseverance.

Stands out in a crowd

The woman behind the Cosmetic & Drug Local banner: three rows of pearls, cap at a jaunty angle, eyes checking out something on the side, her left foot in the air, the heel a whisper above the pavement. Oh, and the least sensible shoes imaginable for a march.
