The Kasher Gallery's presentation of nearly 60 prints, mostly vintage, by photographer Charles Moore is the most extensive and broad-reaching exhibition of the photographer's work to date. The images in The Civil Rights and Beyond are iconic. As a photographer for Life Magazine these moments were burned into our minds by the popular media of the day.

We need not even step into time; we are taken back to moments not long past or easily forgotten: protesters marching in pride or morning, activists resisting the police's brutal efforts by hose or canine to deter, control or quiet the coming change. These prints encapsulate moments that cry out with the voice of the people. Every bit as powerful today as the day they were made these works stur our inner being. The case us to fear, to hope, to remember that the struggle for equality and justice was won with grace, pride, and resistance, but not ease. Change came not by request but by demand- repeated, steady and on the part of the protesters, peaceful demand.
