Foot Soldiers. Voting Rights. Civil Rights. Human Rights. – Theodore Holmes’s Photographs

A look at the ongoing pursuit of rights in America by blacks, begging the persistent question, “Why?”
More than 200 images from a documentation of the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington. The photographer, Theodore Holmes, calls the series “a reminder to people to do something; to organize. This is my visual statement of inspiration and concern about an apparent ‘open season’ on young black people. Do something. That’s more than a vote. My photos are my activism.”
Opening Reception:  Friday, October 7, 5p – 9p.  Dignitaries from Mali, West Africa will be special guests.
