Freedom Summer

Jim Lucas was a photographer whose main focus was to highlight the Freedom Summer which was held in 1968. On June 22 the National Civil Right museum displayed thirty images from Mr. Lucas. His wife Jane Hearn curated the images the late artist had made during this horrific and challenging summer.

Lucas captured images of activist who were killed during the movement along with the KKK who continued to oppress those that were black. He also got a glimpse of strong activist that continued to fight for justice for what was right and wanted equality within the South.
