Builder Levy: Humanity in the Streets

New York City 1960s–1980s

Foreword by Deborah Willis.

Featured image is reproduced from 'Builder Levy: Humanity in the Streets.'

Marching for their lives: three decades of civil rights in America

Builder Levy: Humanity in the Streets documents the resilience and power of the multiracial population that American photographer Builder Levy encountered in New York City between the 1960s and 1980s. In these turbulent decades, people around the world struggled for freedom and independence; across the United States, people marched in the streets to improve their lives. On the streets of New York, Levy saw all this and more.

This comprehensive monograph gathers images of spectacular events and daily life alike. Included are photographs of Civil Rights and anti–Vietnam War protests in the 1960s, the peace march held in 1962 in response to the Cuban Missile Crisis and images of Martin Luther King after his 1968 speech at Carnegie Hall. Also included are shots of the poverty-ravaged Brooklyn of the 1960s, '70s and '80s; the innercity communities where Levy worked as a public school teacher for almost 35 years; and marches and demonstrations in support of local causes like quality education for all NYC children and an end to police killings.

Combining the humanist spirit of social documentary photography with street photography's sense of timing and wit, the photographs in Builder Levy: Humanity in the Streets offer a poignant document of a chapter in a city and a nation's history.


Builder Levy (born 1942) was born in Tampa, Florida, and raised in Brooklyn; he studied photography at Brooklyn College. His photographs are included in more than 80 public collections, including that of the International Center of Photography, the Brooklyn Museum, the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, the High Museum of Art, the Ringling Museum of Art and the Victoria and Albert Museum. Levy lives in New York.

Celebrate Martin Luther King Day with 'Builder Levy: Humanity in the Streets'

Featured image—of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with Mrs. Du Bois Peck Williams, Dr. W.E.B. Du Bois's only granddaughter, at the Freedomways reception after the Dr. W.E.B. Du Bois Centennial Tribute at Carnegie Hall in Manhattan, where Dr. King gave the keynote speech on February 23, 1968—is reproduced from Builder Levy: Humanity in the Streets, New York City 1960s–1980s. Other photos capture civil rights marches, protests, school children playing, families at Coney Island, members of the Black Panther party (including Malcolm X), empty lots, anti-war rallies, kids jumping rope, card games, carrier pigeons and more. "There is a sense of collaboration with the people who are not invisible to the photographer," Deborah Willis writes. "It is a remarkable visual story about beauty and humanity that must not be overlooked." continue to blog
