Jill Freedman’s 1970 photo collection tracks her participation in the Poor Peoples Campaign, following the murder of Martin Luther King Jr. in 1968. She traveled with the Northeast Caravan from New England to Baltimore, all the while photographing the march and its participants. Written text by Freedman intervenes, sometimes offering political commentary and at others, narrating the action.
“Of course, it was old stuff from the start. Another nonviolent demonstration. Another March on Washington. Another army camping, calling on a deaf government. Even poverty is ancient history. Always have been poor people, still are, always will be. Because governments are run by ambitious men of no imagination, whose priorities are so twisted that they burn food while people starve. And we let them. So that history doesn’t change much but the names. Nothing protects the innocent. And no news is new.”
