With the encouragement of the organizer, DC's own Sharlene Kranz (who was called the "youngest SNCC-er" as she was in high school when she began her activism), I made portraits of many of the attendees, as well as documenting the SNCC Legacy Project's evening events.
These are a sampling of the portraits. Every one of these individuals is an American hero, a brave and righteous champion for justice and freedom.
May we carry on their important and still necessary work, moving forward in the struggle for equality and justice for all.
