Statement from Bruce Davidson on the back of print “Protest March from Selma to Montgomery. Alabam, USA. 1965.”

“This photograph was taken during one of the 1965 protest marches from Selma to the Alabama State Capitol in Montgomery. Martin Luther King Jr. led a group of African-American, nonviolent marchers to exercise their constitutional right to vote, in defiance of segregationist repression. This was a watershed moment in the U.S. civil rights movement. I came across this young demonstrator, wrapped in a flag, protesting racism; behind him is Father Sherrill Smith of San Antonio, a white catholic priest who protested against injustice for most of his life.”
