Boyd Lewis and '70's Atlanta
Celebrated Atlanta photographer, Boyd Lewis is known for his political and civil rights journalism from the late ‘60s and ‘70s. Late Civil Rights leader John Calhoun called Lewis “the white boy with the black press.” Lewis photographed late mayor Maynard Jackson and Civil Rights leaders like Julian Bond, Coretta Scott King, Joseph E. Lowery, and Ralph David Abernathy among others—and last summer, he was back in town with a photographic exhibit at City Hall.
We were happy to have him here in our studios to discuss those years and his show. And of course, he brought some photos along with him, many of which you can also check out at his "Atlanta My Atlanta" Facebook page.
