Unseen. Unforgotten.

From the Birmingham (AL) News site, Unseen. Unforgotten:
In November 2004, [Alexander] Cohn went through an equipment closet at the newspaper in search of a lens and saw a cardboard box full of negatives marked, "Keep. Do Not Sell."
What had Cohn found?  5000 images documenting the Civil Rights Movement from 1950-1965, many of which had never been published.  The Birmingham News has put together a wonderful web site to showcase the photos:  If you ever needed evidence of a picture being worth a thousand words, you'll find that evidence here.
