Select a photo from 19501980 in which the subject, the photographer, or both are from a
population whose full inclusion in society was considered a matter for political debate (e.g., Black Americans, women, LGBTQ+ people, disabled or
neurodivergent people, Indigenous Americans, certain immigrant populations, certain ethnic or religious minorities).
Based on your research, briefly describe the context and content of the image. Be sure to cite your sources.
How does the identity of the artist interact with the subject of the photo to create its political or social significance? For example, are the photographer
and the subject on opposite sides of a struggle, or is the photographer documenting their own struggles?
Taking context, content, and artists identity into consideration, what might this image have meant to different audiences at the time it was taken?
