1964. “Cecil Williams, civil rights photographer in the segregated South”.
Cecil Williams, the subject of this photo] was there during the 1960s sit-ins, during Harvey Gantt’s desegregation of Clemson University, during the strike of hospital workers in Charleston, during the shooting and killing of S.C. State University students in the Orangeburg Massacre. … Williams’ work forms one of the nation’s most comprehensive photo collections on the civil rights era. His photos have been published in 128 books, hundreds of newspapers and included in 14 television documentaries. … [He] began his photography career at the age of 9 with a hand-me-down camera.
