Created by the photographer and activist-artist, Sheila Pree Bright, 1960Now is a collection of protest images of the Black Lives Matter Movement. The exhibition consists of photographic portraits of youth in contemporary times, youth of the 60’s and the protest images of the movement around the country. The ultimate goal of 1960Now is to encourage the community to think critically and ignite a dialogue of current social issues among all generations. 1960Now is an evolution of Bright’s 1960Who series inspired by the Civil rights Movement. 1960Who is a collection of images featuring common grassroots youth activists of the 1960s -nameless youth, who placed their lives on the line during segregation in America. They were unknown amongst celebrated leaders and absent in American history books. The images depicted the wisdom of elders, who denounced unfairness of segregation and endured terrorism of Jim Crow laws.
