Capturing the "Freedom Summer"

Aug 8, 2014

50 years ago, Matt Herron gathered a team of photographers to capture the tumultuous summer of 1964 in Mississippi. Now he's in Iowa, sharing his photos and his stories. His work will be displayed in the  Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and Museum in West Branch through September 21.

Host Ben Kieffer talks with Herron about how photography interacted with the civil rights movement and how we can use photography today to make history hit home.
