The Center for Black Literature is pleased to invite you to a benefit supporting The Center for Black Literature. The evening features a VIP viewing of the exhibit “Freedom Journey 1965: Photographs of the Selma to Montgomery March by Stephen Somerstein,” and a cocktail reception.
The exhibit features 55 photographs that document the historic Selma to Montgomery Civil Rights March in 1965, where determined Blacks marched to the Alabama capital to raise awareness for the passage of civil rights and voting rights legislation. Stephen Somerstein was a student at the City University of New York and photo editor of the student newspaper who went to the South to document the monumental crusade.
