Civil Rights Protesters Being Sprayed by Fire Hoses in Birmingham
"No man is an island, Kelly Ingram Park, Birmingham, Alabama. 1963 The police and firemen used a brute show of force to try to stop the ongoing demonstrations. It didn't work on this day. Rather than fleeing, the protestors hung on to each other and were able to stand up to the full fury of the water, though not without casualties. I have never witnessed such cruelty. There was almost as much moisture behind the lens as in front. I gave a print of this picture to Dr. King. He studied it and said, I am startled that out of so much pain some beauty came. "
