Over the next few week’s, we’ll be featuring a number of photographs from Freedom Summer 1964 that are part of a larger exhibition now on view at the Museum, “This Light of Ours: Activist Photographers of the Civil Rights Movement.” See the collection of more than 150 photographs for yourself and be a part of our commemorative events this month.
