This photograph is capturing and recording history from the Civil Rights Movement. The picture is depicting police brutality. Is it up to the photographer to save the person from being beaten or for them to document the event so they may share the image and impact other people? http://photos.state.gov/galleries/usinfo-photo/39/civil_rights_07/

The Mississippi Freedom Riders arrested in Jackson, Miss in 1961. These are the faces of the Civil Rights Movement that are rarely spoken of. It wasn't just black folks who marched, but Jewish and white american who also spoke out and fought for civil rights. Some went to jail and some died. Lest we all forget the price that was paid for all of us.
