M–O-V-E-M-E-N-T-S: Behind the Lens of Black Civil Rights Movements
developed for PBS Black Culture Connection & Cowbird
Executive Producer for this interactive audio slideshow that takes you through over seven decades of the little known, on-the-ground stories of the men and women who captured indelible images of Black civil rights movements across the United States. From intimate moments with the Black Panthers to the Million Man March to the rise of #BlackLivesMatter, experience personal, on-the-ground accounts from over 70 years of Black Civil Rights Movements — including the historic March on Washington.
– Conceived, budgeted, overseeing and editing a major PBS/Cowbird collaboration to tell the stories behind the images of the movement for African-American civil rights, 1950-2015.
– The project features amateur and professional photographers tied to iconic images from an array of movements including Civil Rights, Black Power, LGBT and #BlackLivesMatter and go “behind the lens” of their photos to capture personal, lesser-told stories of the photographers, their images, and the events that changed– and are still changing–– history.
– Supervising the work of four producers collecting stories and pictures from photographers around the country.
– Working closely with PBS Black Culture Connection on the launch of the collection.
