As staff photographer for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), Bob Fitch traveled around the country for almost two years documenting voter registration and other civil rights campaigns. At the same time, Bob also photographed urban and rural black life, which despite predominantly impoverished conditions was infused with a spirit of dignity and vitality. This gallery contains these images-of-spirit. Photographs are from Alabama, Mississippi, Atlanta, Chicago, and California.
