    In the late 1940's there was a heinous crime in my hometown. A lynching of 4 people that goes unsolved to this day. A better explanation than I could ever give is here Moore's Ford
    These were taken during a recent march on the bridge.

    Very impressive. Sad, sad story behind this march. But it's good to be remembered, so a thing like this won't ever happen again!
    The last photo is the strongest, emotionally.
    All other are good.
    I like the close-ups.
    Did you ask for their consent before you put them up into the internet? I would always worry too much about people's rights to their own picture, it's a constant worry with me.

    Got some good shots there. I like the shot of Annie Maud Smith and the picture below it, interesting expressions on their faces.

    Thanks Guys,
    @LA: Yes ma'am, I had their permission. I'm part of the local press (one of about 8 photographers there), and was asked to document the event by the organizers. With the exception of the group shot on the bridge, I spoke to everyone shown, after I shot the images. For that shot the photographers were asked to be on the opposite side of the bridge as the crowd marched across singing "We shall overcome".

    Some good shots here. I really like the third from last shot. Thanks for the story it sheds some meaningful light on the photos.
