In Response to: Mississippi Eyes

Thank you so much for “Being There” (cover story, June 4) on Matt Herron ’53’s photographs about civil rights in Mississippi in 1964. The pictures and the story indicate great courage on his behalf, not only for himself but to organize a group to photograph all of the terrible things that were happening in the South.

I thought the nine pages plus the cover were simply outstanding, and also horrifying reminders of what a terrible time it was for blacks in the Deep South.
