"The old saying, ‘A picture’s worth a thousand words,’ it’s not true. Sometimes, a picture’s worth a million words. You can actually see the emotions and see the tragedy and see the violence.” Don SturkeyBelow: "Two young black men pass Ku Klux Klan marchers in downtown Salisbury, August 1964. The Klan was active in North Carolina, and Sturkey covered many of their demonstrations." (via)
"Sturkey prided himself on capturing the emotion of the moment."
Bob Anthony, curator
