About the Author 
  
Bruce Davidson has been a member of Magnum Photos since 1958. His other books include Subway and Central Park (both Aperture), Brooklyn Gang, and, most recently, Portraits (Aperture).  
  
 
  
Book Description 
  
Many never-before-published images of the civil rights movement in the sixties.  
  
 
  
In May 1961, photographer Bruce Davidson joined the Freedom Riders on a bus from Montgomery, Alabama, to Jackson, Mississippi. This historic ride, which ended in massive protest and arrests, marked the beginning of Davidson's exploration into the heart and soul of the Civil Rights movement in the United States from 1961 to 1965.  
  
 
  
Photographs -- mostly unpublished -- of an early Malcolm X rally in Harlem, Ku Klux Klan cross-burnings, the heroic march in Selma, and more comprise Davidson's newest publication, which focuses on this most provocative and turbulent time.  
  
 
  
Stunning portraits of Martin Luther King, Jr., John Lewis, and many others have also been selected to give a view of this period that is as intimate as it is political.
