My Camera Is My Tool

Abby Zimet

Charles Moore, a Southern gentleman who passionately documented - and some say spurred on - the civil rights movement has died at 79. His photographs were collected in "Powerful Days: The Civil Rights Photography of Charles Moore." 

From Bill Eppridge, a Life magazine colleague of Moore's:

So sad.

Many of us knew him very well.

A true Southern Gentleman.

A fine Journalist.

Thoughtful, incisive, compassionate,

An Artist.

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
