A new traveling exhibit is offering a different view of the civil rights movement - one through a photographer's lens. "This Light of Ours: Activist Photographers of the Civil Rights Movement," produced by the Center for Documentary Arts, highlights the works of nine photographers who documented the movement between 1963 and 1968. Many of the photographers - Bob Adelman, George Ballis, Bob Fitch, Bob Fletcher, Matt Herrón, David Prince, Herbert Randall, Maria Várela and Tamio Wakayama - worked with the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, or SNCC, during the movement. This gave the photographers access from the ground up. The exhibit, which premiered in October at the Leonardo museum in Salt Lake City and will be there until March, includes more than 150 blackand-white photos and audio guides narrated by the photographers. The exhibit will begin a fiveyear national tour next year.
