Road to Freedom: Photographs of the Civil Rights Movement, 1956-1968

Photo of Martin Luther King from the High Museum Collection

The High Museum of Art in Atlanta, Georgia is exhibiting Road to Freedom: Photographs of the Civil Rights Movement, 1956-1968 from today, June 7, until October 5, 2008.

The exhibit will showcase 130 photographs – many of which have never been on public display – from two decades of the Civil Rights Movement.

The High Museum says this exhibition includes unforgettable images that changed a nation, increasing the momentum of the non-violent movement by raising awareness of injustice and the struggle for equality in the United States. Covering the twelve-year period between the Rosa Parks case in 1955—1956 and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s assassination in 1968, Road to Freedom follows key events such as the Freedom Rides of 1961, the Birmingham hosings of 1963 and the Selma-Montgomery March of 1965.

The exhibit coincides with the 40th anniversary of the assassination of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King.
