Charles Moore: I Fight With My Camera

Posted by David Ozanich — 21 Jan 2011


"Charles Moore: I Fight With My Camera" is a couple of years old, but I just caught it for the first time on PBS last night. Here's the description from PBS:

The legendary Montgomery photojournalist's coverage of the Civil Rights era produced its most iconic images (the dogs and fire hoses in Birmingham, the Selma Bridge, and Martin Luther King's arrest in Montgomery, among many others) and helped to quicken the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The noted historian, Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. said that Moore's photographs transformed the national mood and made the legislation not just necessary, but possible. This is his story.

Really worth checking out.
