MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. (1964-75) Photo archive


Np, 1964-1975. Set of twelve vintage original black-and-white photos, mostly about 10 x 8″ (25 x 20 cm.), three are about 9 x 7″ (23 x 18 cm.). A few have printing notations in blank versos, 7 have mimeographed text on verso. Near fine.

A solid archive of twelve photographs of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. from the last five years of his life. Nine are portraits of King. A number are from a 1968 visit to England, where he received an honorary degree and spoke at a press conference. One only is from 1975, a striking portrait printed when news media began to report on the FBI’s harassment campaign against King.
