Bruce Davidson Time of Change: 1961-1965 opened at The Robert Koch Gallery in San Francisco last week. Davidson, who was featured in our special June 2013 Beastie Boys issue, traveled by bus with the anti-segregationist Freedom Riders from Montgomery, Alabama to Jackson, Mississippi and chronicled what later became known as the Civil Rights Movement. The following year Davidson received a Guggenheim Fellowship, which allowed him to further document the African-American struggle for equal opportunity throughout the country.
