The image shows a group of people holding a flag at the Skirball Cultural Center. The exhibition "This Light of Ours: Activist Photographers of the Civil Rights Movement" is on view at the center through February 25, 2024. The photo features text, clothing, a man, a poster, the flag, the sky, people, and an outdoor presentation.
This exhibition showcases more than 150 photographs that reveal the vital work undertaken by a broad coalition of young organizers and everyday people who fashioned a movement that changed America. The exhibition highlights the work of nine photographers primarily affiliated with the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) in the 1960s.


 Unlike photojournalists who only reported on breaking news events from an outsider’s perspective, these nine photographers—of different ethnic, racial, religious, and geographic backgrounds—lived within the Movement and documented its activities by focusing on local people and socially engaged students to portray community life as well as protest.   


Tuesdays – Fridays, 12:00–5:00 p.m., Saturdays & Sundays, 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
