"Struggle for Justice: Four Decades of Civil Rights Photography," on view through July 21 at the Briscoe Center for American History on the University of Texas campus, takes the watchful viewer through the stark realities of segregation; gives candid glimpses of civil rights leaders as they meet and organize; revives memories of on-the-streets activism including major marches; puts the violence and intimidation directed at protesters front and center; and reminds even those without a penchant for history that the midcentury social justice efforts, even after schools and universities were legally integrated and basic voting rights were secured, are far from over.
