Sunday Platform - Eric Etheridge w/ Joe Chuman: Portraits of the 1961 Mississippi Freedom Riders
Sunday, January 13, 2019 - 11:00am
Ceremonial Hall - 4th floor

Learn about the historic 1961 Mississippi Freedom Rides, how the mug shots of the 329 arrested Riders were made and survived, and how Eric Etheridge used them to locate Riders so many years later for his book, Breach of Peace: Portraits of the 1961 Mississippi Freedom Riders. A new edition of the book — which contains the mug shots of all the Riders, as well as Eric’s contemporary portraits and short profiles of 99 of the original Riders — was released this year. Eric will discuss the motivations of the individual Riders in going to Mississippi.

Subsequent to the book’s publication, Etheridge’s Freedom Rider portraits and their mug shots were included in the exhibition, “The Road to Freedom: Photographs of the Civil Rights Movement, 1956-1968,” at the High Museum in Atlanta in 2008, which traveled to the Smithsonian in Washington, DC; the Field Museum in Chicago; the Skirball in Los Angeles; and the Bronx Museum of the Arts in New York City.

In 2011, Etheridge co-founded the Mississippi Freedom 50th Foundation, which organized events in Jackson and across Mississippi to mark the 50th anniversary of the Rides.

ERIC ETHERIDGE started his career as a magazine editor, working at Rolling Stone, Harper’s Magazine, 7 Days, and elsewhere. In 2009, he wrote a daily online column, The Opinionator, for the New York Times.
