Life in the South

Share:

From June 24 to July 31, 2021, the Fahey/Klein Gallery in New York presents historical photographs by Afro-American photojournalist Ernest Withers.

Born in Memphis/Tennessee, Dr. Ernest C. Withers (1922 – 2007) was an internationally acclaimed photojournalist whose work has been published extensively in the New York Times, Washington Post, Time, Life, Jet, and Ebony. His images are in the permanent collection of The Smithsonian and other esteemed institutions.

Withers documented the momentous, and often dangerous upheavals of America’s civil rights movement across the South from the late 1940s to the 1960s. As well as photographing those fighting for racial justice, he also captured scenes of everyday life in the South that convey the African American experience during this crucial era. His vast archive also includes images of famous Memphians who brought Soul, Rock ‘n’ Roll and the Blues into the white mainstream music scene.

The exhibition ‘Ernest Withers: I’ll Take You There’ is presented in conjunction with the recently published book, “The Revolution in Black and White” (CityFiles Press), which can be purchased at the gallery as long as stocks last.
