'View from Cemetery Hill'

“View from Cemetery Hill” is a photo taken by Howard Sochurek for the first Missouri Press Workshop in 1949 in Columbia. Its caption reads:

"In a 1949 article for The Quill, Otha Spencer, a participant at the first Missouri Photo Workshop, described Columbia: 'Instead of being a simple college town … Columbia, upon close inspection, was a city with a race problem, and being situated right on top of the Mason-Dixon Line, the problem was more than ever evident.' The workshop is a laboratory for photographers to improve their visual storytelling skills but also holds up a mirror to the community."
