Unseen: Civil Rights Struggle Photos Unearthed

An photography intern at The Birmingham News recently discovered a treasure trove of old photos from the 50's and 60's while searching an equipment closet for a lens. The negatives were found in a box marked "Keep. Do Not Sell.", and contain some absolutely stunning photographs of people and events in Birmingham during the height of the civil rights struggle. In total, around 5,000 photographs were found, most of which had never been published.

EDIT: God do I hate that fucking flag.

Wow, absolutely fantastic stuff. This is why I hate snobby, self-righteous southern white cunts. If you ever come across stars and bars toliet paper let me know; that's about all that flag is good for.
