The Briscoe Center for American History at the University of Texas at Austin has acquired the Spider Martin Civil Rights Collection.
Cirque du Soleil transforms the most iconic photograph from the 1965 Selma to Montgomery Freedom March into a living image for a larger film sequence in a performance during their beautiful Las Vegas show, Beatles LOVE.
At long last, Spider Martin's powerful and poignant images of the Selma March have been beautifully reproduced in an amazing collection entitled SELMA The Photographs Of Spider Martin as part of the Focus On American History Series through Dolph Briscoe Center For American History University of Texas at Austin - University Of Texas Press.
An exhibit of Spider's work is currently on display at the Briscoe Center for American History at the University of Texas at Austin.
