This is a black and white photograph of a man in profile with his eyes closed and his head raised upward. The man appears against a dark background facing the left side of the composition. His head and upper shoulders are illuminated by a strong light.

Micaëla Gallery printout:"THE STRUGGLE / Oakland 1964 / Civil Rights was on everyone's mind in the early sixties. Having been brought up in an all-white town as a child, I had no real perspective. Robert Taylor was a student friend of mine at art school. Robert and others helped me gain some perspective. The Beats continued my education about human rights, social justice, political freedom, censorship and the environment."
