Tues Feb 7: North of Dixie - Civil Rights Photography Beyond the South

Tuesday, February 7th, 2017 @ 12:15 pm – 1:00 pm
Wisconsin Historical Museum
Suggested donation of $3

The history of the civil rights movement is commonly illustrated with well-known photographs from Birmingham, Montgomery, and Selma—leaving the visual story of the movement outside the South remaining to be told. Historian Mark Speltz will shine a light past the most iconic photographs of the era to focus on images of everyday activists who fought campaigns against segregation, police brutality, and job discrimination in Milwaukee, Cleveland, Chicago, Los Angeles, and many other cities. A book signing will follow the presentation.
