We Will Shoot Back, forthcoming book, will use Estuary Press photos.

Professor Akinyele Umoja of the African American Studies Department at Georgia State University in Atlanta has licensed the use of two photos from the Harvey Richards Media Archive for his forthcoming book “We Will Shoot Back, Armed Resistance in the Mississippi Freedom Struggle” scheduled for publication later in 2012.  The photos of Amzie Moore and Hollis Watkins, leaders of the Mississippi voter registration campaign of SNCC and the NAACP in 1963, were taken by Harvey Richards.  For more, see https://estuarypress.com/mississippi-civil-rights-movement-activists/.
