Exhibition: I AM A MAN: Photographs of the Civil Rights Movement, 1960-1970

"I AM A MAN: Photographs of the Civil Rights Movement, 1960–1970" displays a wide range of photographs taken by amateurs, local photojournalists, and internationally known photographers. Together, they provide a vivid visual story of the evolution of the civil rights movement and shed light on the movement’s integration in the daily living in the American South.

This exhibition has been adapted from an exhibition of the same title, originally produced for the Pavillon Populaire in Montpellier, France, by the Center for Study of the American South at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The French exhibition was funded by the City of Montpellier and administered by Gilles Mora, director of the Pavillion Populaire. This exhibition is toured by ExhibitsUSA, a national program of Mid-America Arts Alliance.
