Civil Rights Exhibition

The Leonardo is now featuring This Light of Ours: Activist Photographers of the Civil Rights Movement, a new traveling exhibit that runs through May 2012. Produced by the Center for Documentary Expression and Art, this exhibition depicts the African-American freedom struggle in the South between 1963 and 1968.

The core of the exhibition is a collection of 156 black-and white photographs that explores the Civil Rights Movement through the work and voices of nine activist photographers—men and women who chose to document the national battle against segregation and other forms of race-based disenfranchisement from within the movement.

In addition to the photographs, the exhibition also includes accompanying audio guides for both youth and adults accessible via personal cell phones, as well as an in-gallery film titled “Utah’s Freedom Riders,” produced by KUED. During the month of February, The Leonardo will offer special docent-led tours, as well selected readings of plays chronicling the black experience .
