About Pep's Pix

Jim Peppler is a graduate of Penn State University who spent the three years after graduation (1965-1968) photographing the Civil Rights Movement and life among Black Southerners in Alabama before moving on to a 38 year career as a Staff Photojournalist with Newsday in Long Island, NY.

After retirement from Photojournalism in 2008 he had a second career teaching Photojournalism at Adelphi and Stony Brook Universities.
