New Images from the Civil Rights Movement

Check out a selection of photographs from a new book by Martin Berger, Freedom Now!: Forgotten Photographs of the Civil Rights Struggle.  These photographs tell different stories than the iconic images that have come to define the Civil Rights struggles of the 1960s in our collective memory.  As you look at this slideshow consider the ways these images are telling a slightly different story than the one in our heads.  What's different here?  What's familiar?  What questions do these images raise for you about the dynamics of the Movement?
