Known Photographers and the Race Riot

One of the goals of working with the photographers is to try to determine their copyright status.  Why?  Because if we don't know their status and who took them, they must be considered "orphan works", which means they remain under copyright for the foreseable future.

Please allow me to demonstrate:
