In matching pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents Steve Schapiro's "Heroes". An extended and intimate portrait gallery of several key figures who have helped shape and define the 20th century. "Brings together an extraordinary collection of stories in the photo-journalistic tradition of people who have shaped our lives, our politics, and our tastes by the celebrated Steve Schapiro. In behind-the-scenes photographs, we visit the young Muhammad Ali and his Monopoly set, followed everywhere by the neighborhood kids. Glimpse the warm family life and campaign of Robert Kennedy. See Andy Warhol in photographs never-before-published. Watch Ray Charles perform. Visit the set with Samuel Beckett. March alongside Martin Luther King, Jr. One of the most respected American documentary photographers, Steve Schapiro had a knack for being in the right place at the right time. His heroes are the iconic men and women who have influenced the political and cultural climate of our times. A rare and intimate glimpse of a major period of American history, photographed during the Golden Age of photojournalism by one of the major talents of the late-20th century" (Publisher's blurb).

About this Item: The Eakins Press Foundation, New York, 2015. Hardcover. Condition: New. 1st Edition. Please inquire. Pricing and availability are subject to change (price is net to all; promotional discounts do not apply). First edition, first printing. Signed in ink by Friedlander. Hardcover. Full red cloth-covered boards, with offset reproduction mounted on the front cover; title stamped in black and gold on cover and spine; no dust jacket as issued. Photographs by Friedlander. Contributions by Martin Luther King, Jr., A. Philip Randolph and Roy Wilkins. Design and typography by Katy Homans. Binding by Riverside Bindery. 88 pp., with 58 plates, plus 11 historical documents, printed by Meridian Printing, East Greenwich, Rhode Island, under the supervision of Daniel Frank, from duotone separations made by Thomas Palmer. 8-1/2 x 9 inches. Lee Friedlander's work is widely known for transforming our visual understanding of contemporary American culture. Known for passionately embracing all subject matter, Friedlander photographed nearly every facet of American life from the 1950s to the present. From factories in Pennsylvania, to the jazz scene in New Orleans, to the deserts of the Southwest, Friedlander's complex formal visual strategies continue to influence the way we understand, analyze, and experience modern American experience. Friedlander's work continues to influence photographic practice internationally, in part due to the heightened sense of self-awareness that is a trademark of so many of his photographs and in part because of his ability to embrace wide-ranging subject matter, always interpreting it in an elegance that hadn't existed prior to his work. New (from Friedlander's personal archive). From the publisher: "On May 17, 1957, through the generosity of Bayard Rustin, Lee Friedlander was given full access to photograph the participants of the Prayer Pilgrimage for Freedom in Washington, D.C. This extraordinary event, organized by Mr. Rustin, as well as A. Philip Randolph, Roy Wilkins and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., brought together many of the great thinkers and leaders of the period, and was a pivotal moment in the Civil Rights Movement. Friedlander's photographs depict the famous individuals at the event--Mahalia Jackson, Ruby Dee, and Harry Belafonte among many other luminaries of the African-American community--but they also pay particular attention to the 25,000 men, women and children who gathered to give voice and energy to the ideas embattled by the movement. The 58 previously unpublished photographs are among Friedlander's earliest work. Also included in this publication is the typescript of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "Give Us the Ballot" speech and additional ephemera from the march produced in facsimile." Signed by Author.

He had established an acquaintance with Dr. King while a student in Boston and remained a close family friend. Kaplanjoined the NAACP in 1932 and later succeeded Arthur Spingarn as president of the group, serving from 1966 until his death in 1975. King sent Kaplan a telegram in January 1966 to congratulate Kaplan's election: "I can think of no one better suited for this high responsibility. Your penetrating vision, your creative resources and energies, and your profound dedication to the cause of freedom and justice superbly equip you to serve as president of our largest and most influential civil rights organization. May god bless you as your continue your great work" (The Jacob Rader Marcus Center of the American Jewish Archives). In his tenure, Kaplan traveled the country selling lifetime NAACP memberships, which grew from 221 to over 53,000. Kaplan marched with King in Selma, and they were jailed together several times, including during the Freedom Summer when he went to Mississippi to register African American voters. A fine association copy. 'Strength to Love' is King's second book, collecting his sermons on racial segregation in the United States and espousing his ideal of agape: the highest form of love.

About this Item: Inscribed by Martin Luther King, Jr., "For Jean Bach With Best Wishes Martin Luther King, Jr." The recipient Jean Bach was an activist, filmmaker and doyenne of New York Jazz. She was an important figure in New York Jazz circles, as well as a social activist and the director of the Oscar-winning film, A Great Day in Harlem. In fine condition. Double matted and framed opposite a print of King, Jr. A nice association. Martin Luther King Jr. was an Baptist minister and activist who became the most visible spokesperson and leader in the civil rights movement from 1954 through 1968. He is best known for his role in the advancement of civil rights using the tactics of nonviolence and civil disobedience based on his Christian beliefs and inspired by the nonviolent activism of Mahatma Gandhi. King led the 1955 Montgomery bus boycott and in 1957 became the first president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC). With the SCLC, he led an unsuccessful 1962 struggle against segregation in Albany, Georgia, and helped organize the nonviolent 1963 protests in Birmingham, Alabama. He also helped organize the 1963 March on Washington, where he delivered his famous "I Have a Dream" speech. On October 14, 1964, King received the Nobel Peace Prize for combating racial inequality through nonviolent resistance. In 1965, he helped to organize the Selma to Montgomery marches, and the following year he and the SCLC took the movement north to Chicago to work on segregated housing. In his final years he expanded his focus to include opposition towards poverty and the Vietnam War, alienating many of his liberal allies with a 1967 speech titled "Beyond Vietnam". In 1968, King was planning a national occupation of Washington, D.C., to be called the Poor People's Campaign, when he was assassinated on April 4 in Memphis, Tennessee. He was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Congressional Gold Medal. Martin Luther King Jr. Day was established as a holiday in numerous cities and states beginning in 1971, and as a U.S. federal holiday in 1986. The Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., was dedicated in 2011. Seller Inventory # 80020

Boldly SIGNED by the author on the front free endpaper. First-issue dust jacket with "No. 8471A" on front and rear flaps. Dust jacket with price of $2.95 intact and complete. There is a 1/2" closed tear toward the upper right corner of the front of the dust jacket and a bit of chipping to the head and foot of the spine. Blue cloth boards. Tips of boards are very slightly bent with tiny bit of loss at the tip ends. All in all this is a very attractive copy of this high spot in the American Civil Rights Movement signed by its most famous leader. Subtitled "The Montgomery Story," Stride Toward Freedom is Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s dramatic and inspiring account of Rosa Parks and the Montgomery bus strike that led to the first successful large-scale application of non-violent resistance to segregation in the United States. This was Dr. King's first book, published when he was only 29 years old, three years after he led the 1955 Montgomery Bus Boycott. The book documents significant events of the burgeoning Civil Rights movement and is illustrated with a dozen black and white photographs, including one of Dr. King wearing a prison booking number around his neck, and an iconic photograph of Rosa Parks being fingerprinted. Runs 230pp. Bound in blue cloth boards and black cloth spine with silver lettering. According to Martin Luther King, Stride Toward Freedom, his memoir of the Montgomery bus boycott, is ''the chronicle of 50,000 Negroes who took to heart the principles of nonviolence, who learned to fight for their rights with the weapon of love, and who in the process, acquired a new estimate of their own human worth'' (King, 9). In early 1957 numerous publishers began encouraging King to write a book about the boycott. By October of that year, he signed a contract with Harper & Brothers that was negotiated by his new literary agents, Joan Daves and Marie Rodell, and began work on the manuscript. In Stride Toward Freedom, King delineates racial conditions in Montgomery before, during, and after the bus boycott. He discusses the origin and significance of the boycott, the roles that residents, civic leaders, and community organizations played in organizing and sustaining the movement, and the reactions of white Montgomery officials and residents. According to King, before the boycott African Americans in Montgomery were victims of segregation and poverty, but after the boycott, when bus desegregation was achieved, they evidenced a new level of self-respect (King, 28; 187). King points out that most African Americans in Montgomery accepted a nonviolent approach because they trusted their leaders when they told them that nonviolence was the essence of active Christianity.

About this Item: Harper & Row, Publishers, New York, 1963.

Indeed, we live in a day of grave crisis. The sermons in this volume have the present crisis as their background; and they have been selected for this volume because, in one way or another, they deal with the personal and collective problems that the crisis presents."

About this Item: Rare original photograph boldly inscribed by Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr., "Best Wishes to Mr. & Mrs. Ken Browne, From Martin L. King." The photograph measures 3.5 inches by 5 inches. Double matted and framed. The entire piece measures 12 inches by 13 inches. In very good condition. Photographs signed by King are rare and desirable. Martin Luther King Jr. was a Baptist minister and activist who became the most visible spokesperson and leader in the civil rights movement from 1954 through 1968. He is best known for his role in the advancement of civil rights using the tactics of nonviolence and civil disobedience based on his Christian beliefs and inspired by the nonviolent activism of Mahatma Gandhi. King led the 1955 Montgomery bus boycott and in 1957 became the first president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC). With the SCLC, he led an unsuccessful 1962 struggle against segregation in Albany, Georgia, and helped organize the nonviolent 1963 protests in Birmingham, Alabama. He also helped organize the 1963 March on Washington, where he delivered his famous "I Have a Dream" speech. On October 14, 1964, King received the Nobel Peace Prize for combating racial inequality through nonviolent resistance. In 1965, he helped to organize the Selma to Montgomery marches, and the following year he and the SCLC took the movement north to Chicago to work on segregated housing. In his final years he expanded his focus to include opposition towards poverty and the Vietnam War, alienating many of his liberal allies with a 1967 speech titled "Beyond Vietnam". In 1968, King was planning a national occupation of Washington, D.C., to be called the Poor People's Campaign, when he was assassinated on April 4 in Memphis, Tennessee. He was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Congressional Gold Medal. Martin Luther King Jr. Day was established as a holiday in numerous cities and states beginning in 1971, and as a U.S. federal holiday in 1986. The Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., was dedicated in 2011. Seller Inventory # 92466
