David Walter Banks photographed Al Vivian, president of Basic Diversity, at his home in Fayetteville, Ga.  Vivian and others were interviewed for their reaction on the incident involving the arrest of Henry Louis Gates Jr., Harvard’s prominent scholar of African-American history. Professor Gates was arrested for disorderly conduct July 16 at his home in Cambridge, Mass., as the police investigated a report of a possible break-in there. The charge was later dropped, and the Cambridge Police Department said the incident was “regrettable and unfortunate.”  Check out the Times’ story here.
