March to Freedom

June 6, 2017August 26, 2017

Through renowned photojournalist James “Spider” Martin's camera and the words of Congressman John Lewis, former head of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), March to Freedom follows a determined group of marchers, both black and white, as they tried on three different occasions in March 1965 to take their cause to the steps of the Alabama Statehouse in Montgomery.

March to Freedom is an exhibition by the Dolph Briscoe Center for American History at The University of Texas at Austin and the LBJ Presidential Library, presented in partnership with Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
