This is the first monograph on Brooklyn-based photographer Bev Grant's (born 1942) extensive archive of photographs made from 1968 to 1972, when she was on the frontlines as a feminist and political activist. Grant began taking photographs as part of her participation in demonstrations with the Women's Movement, such as No More Miss America in Atlantic City in 1968 and The Jeannette Rankin Brigade in Washington, DC, in 1968. As a member of the film collective New York Newsreel, she gained access to the Young Lords Party, the Black Panther Party and the Poor People's Campaign.''When I sat in on a workshop given by Students for a Democratic Society at Princeton University in 1967, I had no idea of the impact it would have on the rest of my life. The workshop topic was women's liberation. It was an awakening, a dawn of consciousness that gave me a framework to understand my life and a path that I continue to follow''.
