ATLANTA — A collection of photographs from the 1960s civil rights movement taken by a Georgia State University administrator will be on display at the campus through September. The exhibit — called "Photo Griots" — focuses on women in the movement, including author Alice Walker and Charlayne Hunter-Gault, one of the first Black students at the University of Georgia. Many of the photos were taken by Doris Derby, director of African-American student services and programs at the downtown Atlanta campus. Others were taken by Sue Ross, a photographer for the City of Atlanta mayor’s office. The exhibit opened Monday and will be in the Hammonds House Museum until Sept. 13. ______ Copyright 2009 Associated Press. All rights reserved.
