Memories of the Southern Civil Rights Movement

Photographer Danny Lyon captured some of the Civil Rights Movement’s most compelling moments, from the March on Washington, to the aftermath of the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing in Birmingham, Alabama. Lyon began his photographic career in the early 1960s as the first staff photographer for the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), a national group of college students who joined together after the first sit-in by four African American college students at a North Carolina lunch counter.

A Peace of My Mind: American Stories

A Peace of My Mind is a multimedia arts project built around the simple question, “What does peace mean to you?” Founded in 2009 by award-winning Minnesota photographer John Noltner, the project began as his effort to rediscover humanity in an increasingly polarized world. With portraits and personal stories, ordinary people (including Little Rock Vice Mayor, Kathy Webb) reveal extraordinary insights into how we can work toward common good and create a world that is more just for all.
