Stanford University Opens Digital Civil Rights Photos Archive
Civil rights activist Cesar Chavez is one of the subjects featured in Stanford Libraries’ new Bob Fitch Photography Archive, a collection of images shining a spotlight on critical moments in the peace, social justice, and cultural movements of the 1960’s and 1970’s. Currently only about 200 images are now online and available in the Stanford Libraries’ catalog, including photos of Chavez and Martin Luther King Jr. In time, the complete archive will have about 200,000 images. The images and their metadata will be available for research, discovery and teaching purposes.
