The black-and-white photograph of two women with signs that read "Freedom Now CORE" and "Whose Great Society?" was taken by Diana Davies at the March with Selma civil rights demonstration in Harlem, NY in 1965. CORE (Congress of Racial Equality) was one of the leading activist organizations in the early years of the American Civil Rights Movement. "Great Society" was Lyndon B. Johnson's set of domestic initiatives to eradicate poverty and racial injustice.
