"Eat at Joe's Black + White"
Photographs by Jim Wallace

National Press Club
529 14th Street, NW - 13th Floor
Washington, DC 20045
Tel: 202-662-7500

A photojournalism documentary of marches, sit-ins, arrests, the Ku Klux Klan and the 1963 March on Washington. "Eat at Joe's Black + White" is a photography exhibit by Jim Wallace.

The time was 1963. The civil rights demonstrations and sit-ins were spreading across the South and Chapel Hill, North Carolina was a microcosm of events throughout the country. Students, religious leaders and residents targeted segregated restaurants and public facilities to demand full "public accommodations" and the desegregation of all facilities open to the public.

Jim Wallace is the past Director/Curator of the Imaging and Photographic Services at the Smithsonian Institution, which he served for 29 years. Mr. Wallace began his photography career while he was a student at the University of North Carolina School of Journalism and Mass Communication. UPI, the Charlotte Observer and Newsweek published his photographs, as well as in the book "The Free Men" by John Ehle in 1965. Many of the photographs in this exhibit have never been seen by the public.

The exhibit of 40 images will be on display in the National Press Club lobby from March 3 to March 31, 2008. The lobby is open to the public.

The National Press Club is located 529 14th Street, NW, 13th Floor, Washington, DC 200045.

The get-together will be held at Dragonfly Design Decor, (1457 Church St. N.W.

A portion of the photography sales will be  donated to educational projects for children in Tibet.
