Summary
  • A Life Is More Than a Moment carries us back to those painful and turbulent times, but it does not leave us there. For more than thirty years, Will used these images as proof of the power of a well-taken photograph to do good. Stung by the claims of a student that Central High was not better off for his efforts in 1957, Will decided to return to Little Rock. He went back to Central High and took a new series of photos. He even managed to find many of the most important people in his original photographs. Much has happened to them in forty years, and Will, the consummate storyteller, gives voice to their lives
  • Will Campbell, author of Brother to a Dragonfly, is right on the mark in the Introduction when he says of Will that "his camera was a veritable X-ray machine, probing the depths of the drama." This is a book that does show some of the terrible ugliness in life, but in the end it is also a beautiful story of hope and reconciliation
