From the bonds of slavery to the Civil Rights Movement, from the Deep South to the northern metropolises, from the Harlem Renaissance to the riots of South Central Los Angeles, Freedom tells of the African American struggle for equality from the first photographic records in nineteenth century all the way to the present. It is organized chronologically in five sections with introductory essays and narrative captions by noted scholars Manning Marable and Leith Mullings. The array and selection of photographs, many never seen before, reveal the journey in all its complexity and nuance, covering the struggle in its many different aspects - political, social, economic, and cultural. Highly relevant today, the photographs tell of the tremendous courage, determination, and power of a people fighting for a common goal.

Review:

"Freedom is a wonderful resource thanks to the sheer depth of information... leaving readers with a sense of how far the country has come as well as how far it might go in matters of civil rights, race relations and mutual understanding."-USA Today "An epic undertaking that pulls together imagery from the few extant daguerreotypes of African American abolitionists and slaves through the shattering images made during the civil rights movement."-American Photo
