1. and one just passed away recently....


Not long ago, Atlanta artist Charmaine Minnifield was working with her mentor and friend Doris A. Derby on some of Derby’s photographs when Minnifield paused to ask which images most stirred her soul.

Those of the women and the children, said Derby, an activist and photographer, who spent years documenting the civil rights movement in the South.

“She felt that their role in the civil rights movement was less acknowledged and honored but were the most paramount,” said Minnifield. “She witnessed their existence inside the freedom movement and how they resisted Jim Crow in their every-day lives.”

Derby died Monday at age 82 after a battle with cancer, according to actor Bob Banks, her husband of 26 years. Arrangements are pending.
