Leonard Freed was one of the six photographers first identified as "concerned" by Cornell Capa. Like André Kertész, Werner Bischof, and Capa's brother Robert, Freed was an artist with a deeply humanist bent—an engaged photojournalist, never a dispassionate observer.

The best evidence of his concern may be his 1968 book, "Black in White America," the subject of a timely exhibition at the Silverstein gallery. Freed travelled throughout the segregated South, but only occasionally worked the front lines of the civil-rights struggle. He was more interested in the lives of the ordinary black Americans.
