This groundbreaking book depicts scenes from the frontlines of American feminism and civil rights, from the archives of folk singer, filmmaker and photographer Bev Grant (born 1942.)
This is the first monograph on Brooklyn-based photographer Bev Grant's extensive archive of photographs made from 1968 to 1972, when she was on the frontlines as a feminist and political activist. Grant began taking photographs as part of her participation in demonstrations with the Women’s Movement, the Anti-War Movement, and the Social Justice Movement. As a member of the film collective New York Newsreel, she gained access to the Young Lords Party, the Black Panther Party and the Poor People's Campaign.
