Everyday Life Under Segregation

When: Oct. 9-March 2 2014

In late 1956, over the course of several months, LIFE magazine published a series of articles about life in the segregated South, focusing on Greenville, SC. The series…, “ambitiously and simply titled The Background of Segregation, explored the emotionally and politically charged issue at a time when the Civil Rights movement was barely in its infancy.” Images and excerpts from the articles provide a direct look at everyday life under segregation.
