Abstract:

This collection comprises the photographic materials made by Don Sturkey from 1951 to 1989, the majority of which he produced in his capacity as staff photographer for the "Charlotte Observer" (1955-1989). Primarily depicted are local news and sports events covered by Sturkey. He captured numerous images portraying the tense racial climate of the time, including Ku Klux Klan meetings and rallies; blacks and whites picketing segregated establishments; a lottery drawing for school integration in the Charlotte and Mecklenburg County public schools; and Dorothy Counts, the first black student to attend Harding High School in Charlotte in 1957. Also included are many images of the civil rights leaders of the 1950s and 1960s, numerous North Carolina and United States politicians, famous musicians and entertainers, several NASA missions, and the construction of Walt Disney World in 1971.
