When: Thu., Sept. 29 2016

The battle for Civil Rights in the 1960s marked an important turning point in American history. To commemorate that important moment, the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage will present This Light of Ours: Activist Photographers of the Civil Rights Movement, an exhibit of more than 150 black-and-white images chronicling the Southern Freedom Movement. The 4,000-square-foot exhibit opens today. The Maltz Museum added videos, interactive features and material about racial division today. This Light of Ours: Activist Photographers of the Civil Rights Movement features photographers Bob Adelman, George Ballis, Bob Fitch, Bob Fletcher, Matt Herron, David Prince, Herbert Randall, Maria Varela and Tamio Wakayams. The Maltz Museum conceived and produced the films, design and exhibition experience. (Niesel)
