about the archive

The Kenneth P. Green, Sr. Photography Archive is the collected works of Mr. Green over his career. What separates the Green Archive from conventional journalistic sources is the thousands of additional images Green captured as a participant and member of a dynamic community mobilizing during turbulent years.

These photographs reflect his true artistry, his ability to capture the multifaceted organic expression of the African American community in the Bay Area—unrehearsed portraits of movement leaders, interactions of families, students, and community members, and the full range of people who participated in the daily work of social change.
