Don Hogan Charles was the first black photographer to be hired by The New York Times, in 1964. In his more than four decades at The Times, Don photographed politicians, celebrities, fashion, food and everyday life in New York City. But he may be best remembered for the work that earned him early acclaim: his photographs of key moments and figures of the civil rights era.
Since 1851, the New York Times has been on the ground reporting stories from around the globe that no one else was telling. How we tell those stories has changed, but our mission to seek the truth and help people understand the world has remained constant.
