Documenting a Not so Distant Past

Documenting a Not so Distant Past
LITTLE ROCK  •  Arkansas Arts Center  •  Ongoing
This exhibition features three suites of photographs that document racial segregation, efforts to integrate and the Civil Rights movement. On loan from the Spencer Museum of Art at the University of Kansas, the photographs by Marion Palfi document the “Jim Crow” laws that sought to separate races both physically and ideologically. Photographs by Will Counts, from the Arkansas Arts Center Foundation Collection, show the events that developed during the 1957 Little Rock Central High School integration crisis. The “I Am A Man” portfolio of Ernest Withers, on loan from the Toledo Museum of Art, documents Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Rev. Ralph Abernathy and others as they participated in significant Civil Rights movement events.
