To Right These Wrongs features evocative photographs by Billy E. Barnes, the North Carolina Fund’s director of public relations. Barnes’s work captures the deplorable conditions of poverty, the hope offered by President Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society, and the determination of the poor to fight for a better world — for themselves and all Americans.
The Billy E. Barnes Collection at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill contains thousands of negatives and digitized images that document the North Carolina Fund’s work.
