From the book North of Dixie: Civil Rights Photographs Beyond the South.
In 1963, my friends and I left Fairfax High School with our school books. For weeks we traveled to the LAUSD offices in downtown Los Angeles for a “study-in” protesting our racially segregated schools.
I was fifteen years old.
We were also there to support hunger strikers from the Congress of Racial Equality protesting district lines that re-enforced L.A.’s racially segregated housing patterns.
From amazing photographs in a recently published book: North of Dixie: Civil Rights Photographs Beyond the South.
