Alabama photographer Charles Moore documented one of the most painful chapters of American history - the civil rights movement. Powerful Days is powerful stuff. The freedom marchers look as heroic as Iwo Jima Marines fighting their way up a mountain - which is just about what they had to do. - Newsweek ""Mr. Moore's stark, crisp photos of freedom marchers beset by police dogs and fire hoses... helped to shape the nation's conscience.... [This book] contains many images that will be wrenchingly familiar to those who lived through the proud moral turning point in American history, and that might serve to inspire younger generations."" - New York Times Book Review ""Every once in a while we receive a well-documented treasure of American history. This collection is such a treasure.... [Moore's] black-and-white photos of that era are classics of photojournalism, and as Powerful Days documents, those classics have lost none of their force and energy."" - Southern Living
