Migrant Mother, Nipomo California 1936 - by Dorothea Lange. My favourite photograph. The picture that made me become a photographer. And the first picture that made me realise what emotion photography could bring.
Claudette Colvin. Nine months before Rosa Parks’ famous bus boycott, Colvin at 15 refused to give up her seat to a white passenger. She was inspired to stand up for her rights after learning about African American leaders in school. Civil rights leaders didn't publicize her story because she became an unwed mother. How sad is that? - Nicky J.
