My Camera Is My Tool

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.
