Stand amongst luminaries of the Civil Rights and Black Power Movements. Maryland photographer J.M. Giordano has photographed the well-known, as well as unsung, freedom fighters of the era in formal portraits. While historic images of civil rights and Black Power leaders exist through photojournalism, Giordano composes portraits as a statement of the prominence of these individuals. His work establishes a new visual history of this pivotal American era. On view include Marylanders Dr. Helena Hicks, Simeon Booker, Dr. Maulana Karenga, and Robert Houston.
