Martin Luther King Original Photo

Martin Luther King Original Photo

Profoundly moving 14 1/2 x 20 1/2" b&w photograph of a young Dr. Martin Luther King delivering an impassioned sermon at the Enon Baptist Church in Columbia, Mississippi in 1958. This was a pivotal time in King's life. Having formed the Southern Christian Leadership Conference the year before, in '58 he would be stabbed and nearly killed while speaking in Harlem, and later in the year he would meet with President Eisenhower in Washington, D.C. to discuss civil rights issues. The photo of King at the lecturn gesturing with his index finger is NRMT with scattered scratches well beneath King's face and arm and is mounted on thick cardboard backing, which shows greater damage mainly along the bottom edge and a hole at the center top made for wall hanging the piece. Rarely seen King memento.
