Photographing the Civil Rights Movement

Photographer Danny Lyon's work captures some of the American Civil Rights Movement’s most compelling moments, from the March on Washington to the aftermath of the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing in Birmingham, Alabama. Lyon joined Civil Rights leader and politician Julian Bond for a wide-ranging conversation at the 2014 National Geographic Photography Seminar in Washington, D.C. This video is an excerpt of their discussion.
