These are dark times indeed for peace, liberty and justice. We all need to play our part and stand up for what is right. Turn many of the images of the riots and police brutality In the USA today into black and white and they could have been taken 50 years ago. Have we really made so little progress even after two months of being confronted daily by the stark face of our own mortality?

One of the purposes of photography has always been to document events and as a gallery of photography we feel that it is our duty to be part of the conversation. As humans, we feel it is our duty to speak up.

We cannot possibly offer an overview on such a complex and entangled subject but we thought to share the direct experience of some of our photographers who have been close to the cause of civil rights at different times in history.
