A cop and a black teenage boy. Some things change, others remain the same. Check out the photo that changed the civil rights movement.
“If it wasn’t for the photograph of the clench-jawed cop straining at the leash of his German shepherd as it lunges into the belly of a black teenager, there would probably be no Civil Rights Act, no Voting Rights Act, nor any sort of equal rights act at all. There certainly would have been no “Bloody Sunday” march in Selma, which marks its 50th anniversary this month and is currently playing in a movie theater near you.”
