Confrontation - Tupelo, Mississippi 1978

(one photograph in the "Struggle" series)

Artist Statement

I shot this photograph at a rally protesting the KKK during Thanksgiving weekend in Tupelo Ms. in 1978.While we were protesting the klansmen having a press conference at the jail, a young lady told me and another brother that the klan was having a rally at the post office. The brother I was with said he was going to go cuss them out, so I said I'm going with you to take your picture. He cussed and I photographed.
