FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — A Fort Lauderdale exhibit of civil rights-era photography is being extended to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act.

The exhibit of Bob Adelman's photographs opened at Nova Southeastern University's Museum of Art-Fort Lauderdale in January. The photographs of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and historic marches to Montgomery, Alabama, will remain on view through July 13.

Adelman volunteered as a photographer to the Congress of Racial Equality and the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. He went on to shoot the covers of national magazines and the front pages of national newspapers.

In January, Adelman told The Associated Press that events now considered momentous originally were buried in newspapers' back pages.

President Lyndon Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act into law on July 2, 1964.
