In 1965, student newspaper photographer Stephen Somerstein traveled to Alabama to document the historic civil rights march from Selma to Montgomery. A student at City College of New York, Somerstein brought five cameras for the 54-mile march, a protest which ultimately included over 25,000 people. Hidden from the public for decades, 59 of Somerstein’s recently unearthed photos are now on display at the library, the first stop on a national tour of these unique photographs.
