From the famous marches of the civil rights movement to the struggle for local suffrage, Washingtonians have always been on the frontlines of political debate. Their lack of representation has impelled residents to make positive change through peaceful, and often creative, forms of protest. Mark S. Greek, photo archivist for the D.C. Public Library, has compiled a stunning collection of images of Washingtonians affecting change. From the images of Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Clifford Berryman to scenes of sit-ins and picket lines, Greek crafts a visual narrative of triumph and continuing struggle.
Washington, D.C. Protests: Scenes from Home Rule to the Civil Rights Movement is a vivid and electric portrait of the spirit of a city and its people.
