Celebrated photographer Ernest Withers chronicled history with his camera lens, capturing some of the most iconic images of the Civil Rights Movement. He was at the Montgomery bus boycott, the Memphis sanitation workers strike, and even at the Lorraine Motel moments after Dr. Martin Luther King Jr was gunned down 50 years ago. Often at his side was Withers’s daughter Rosalind. Today, she is the guardian of his legacy, the Withers Collection. Come see and hear the history-changing stories she witnessed first-hand.
