<i>Black in White America</i>
Black in White America
by Leonard Freed
In 1962 Leonard Freed went to Berlin to shoot the wall being erected. There he saw an African-American soldier standing in front of the wall and it struck him: At home in the United States, African-Americans were struggling for civil rights, and here in Germany an African-American soldier was ready to defend his nation. This prompted a lengthy examination by Freed of the plight of African-Americans in the United States. Freed traveled to New York, Washington, D.C., and throughout the South, capturing images of a racially entrenched society. The photos were then published in 1968 in Black in White America.
