Documenting Life in the Segregated South
An image gallery of 46 stunning photographs taken in the mid-1960s to accompany an unpublished report on living conditions in the African-American neighborhoods of Natchez, Mississippi, dramatically documents life in the segregated South. Mark Lundeen, a volunteer with the Delta Ministry, did the research and report text, but it's not known if he was the photographer. The photographer blended careful composition with emotionally evocative content in a way that is still powerful after half a century.
