I had hoped my photographs would form an
inspiring overview of one chapter in our struggle for equality in
America. But that hope dimmed over the years as I photographed life in
low-income housing projects, the struggle against the Ku Klux Klan in
Forsyth County, Georgia, and riots between black citizens and police in
the Liberty City district of Miami. The struggle's end that I had longed
for was nowhere in sight.
