finding photojournalist from the civil rights movement : LUSENET : Dirck Halstead : One Thread

Are there any books or interviews about photojournalists during the civil rights movement? I found one book by Charles Moore and a book on Gordon Parks.

You might want to look at "Memories of the Southern Civil Rights Movement," by Danny Lyon. A short description can be found at

Also, Matt Herron ran the Southern Documentary Project during the Civil Rights movement. He is interviewed in a new book by Ken Light, "Witness in our Time."
