Abstract:

The images in this collection chronicle the Southern experience during a significant transitional period in its history: from the early Civil Rights years to the many signs of hope for change embodied in such social programs as Head Start, VISTA, and various rural health initiatives the 1960s and 1970s. Also included are numerous images of the photographer's son David Roberts, who has Down's Syndrome; a photo essay extracted from these was the first such publication on this topic. Roberts photographed most of the prominent politicians and other public figures of his time, including Jim Bakker, Billy Graham, Lyndon Baines Johnson, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, Edmund Muskie, Elvis Presley, Bob Scott, Doc Watson, and Roy Wilkins. Landscapes from the Blue Ridge and Smoky Mountains to the Outer Banks capture the beauty of Roberts' adopted state of North Carolina.
