Defying the Quiet: Photography of the Civil Rights Movement in South Carolina

October 4, 2013 – January 17, 2014, 2nd floor, North Gallery

This exhibit highlighted the many civil rights campaigns across the state of South Carolina during the early 1960s, giving voice to many of the students who participated in them. Exploring the movement through photographs by Cecil Williams, David Wallace and the staff photographers of the State Newspaper, the show set these against moving images of protests, marches, and bombings, as well as documented interviews of those South Carolina students who organized, gathered and stood up against segregation and racial discrimination.
