Davidson was arrested twice after joining the Freedom Riders in the South as a photographer for the New York Times.
Davidson experienced and documented the Civil Rights protests in the American South from 1961-1965. His photographs of the movement reveal the multi-faceted nature of the fight for change. He documented protests, speeches, marches, all the while pursuing his habitual interest in the everyday lives of these African Americans fighting for equal rights.
