King, both a Baptist minister and civil-rights activist, had a seismic impact on race relations in the United States, beginning in the mid-1950s. Among many efforts, King headed the SCLC. Through his activism, he played a pivotal role in ending the legal segregation of African-American citizens in the South and other areas of the nation, as well as the creation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. King received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964, among several other honors. King was assassinated in April 1968, and continues to be remembered as one of the most lauded African-American leaders in history, often referenced by his 1963 speech, "I Have a Dream.".

About this Item: Atlanta, Georgia, 1964. Autograph letter signed by Martin Luther King Jr. to Margaret Long, Editor of New South: The Journal of the Southern Regional Council. One page, on Southern Christian Leadership Conference letterhead, Dr. King corresponds with Margaret Long regarding a recently published article concerning the African American Civil Rights Movement, it is dated April 5, 1964. It reads, "For several weeks I have intended answering your letter of February 18th. A brief trip out of the country, constant absences from the city and the accumulation of a huge volume of mail account for the delay. Since I am about the leave the office again, my reply will have to be very brief. I simply want to say that I am very grateful to you for writing to me, and the temporary misunderstanding which may have developed as a result of your article in the Progressive has now passed away. I am sure that you can understand why we reacted as we did in the beginning. We felt that some of the things stated were misrepresentations of the facts. Of course, I live with misrepresentation of facts almost each day concerning my life and work, and I never bother to answer such accusations because they are usually from persons that may be considered enemies to the civil rights struggle. But when misrepresentations come from friends, you do have a different reaction. I am so sure, however, that your statements were not malicious in intent. Consequently, I hope you do not interpret our concern as representing condemnation. As you know, I have great admiration for you as a person and as a writer, and can assure you that this admiration has not been diminished one iota as a result of your article in the Progressive. I hope our paths cross again real soon. It is always good to see you. With warm personal regards. Sincerely yours, Martin." A remarkable piece offering deep insight into Martin Luther King Jr.'s daily life. Double matted and framed. The entire piece measures 15.5 inches by 24 inches. Margaret Long served as the editor of New South: The Journal of the Southern Regional Council from 1961 to 1966 in which she was featured in a regular column, "Strictly Subjective". The Southern Regional Council was a non-profit organization headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia and founded in 1944 by Howard W. Odum to promote racial equality in the Southern United States. A coalition of lawyers, ministers, and newspaper editors from thirteen southern states, the SRC was composed mostly of white Americans. The organization's membership declined by almost half when it resolved to openly condemn segregation, stating that it "in and of itself constitutes discrimination and inequality of treatment.".

About this Item: The only signed copy of this religious work we have ever seenMartin Luther King, Jr. was an American Baptist minister, activist, humanitarian, orator, and leader and architect of the nonviolent Civil Rights movement, A Nobel Peace Prize laureate, King was among the twentieth centuryÕs most influential figures. King was also the author of several books, including Strength to Love, which was published in 1963 as a collection of his finest and best-known sermons, primarily on the topic of racial segregation in the United States. He originally proposed the book in early 1957, but initially found little time to submit a working draft to his publishers. King was finally able to start working on the sermons in July of 1962 while in jail during the Albany Movement. Having been arrested for holding a prayer vigil outside Albany City Hall, King and Ralph Abernathy shared a jail cell for 15 days that was, according to King, Òdirty, filthy, and ill-equippedÓ, and Òthe worse I have ever seen.Ó While behind bars, he was able to spend a fair amount of uninterrupted time preparing the drafts for the sermons ÒLoving Your Enemies,Ó ÒLove in Action,Ó and ÒShattered Dreams,Ó and continued to work on the volume after his release. King sent the first part of the manuscript to his publisher in the early fall 1962, and it included several sermons that had become King standards, such as ÒPaulÕs Letter to American ChristiansÓ and ÒWhat Is Man?ÓAs the first volume of sermons by an African-American preacher widely available to a white audience, Strength to Love was a landmark work and remains a concrete testament to KingÕs lifelong commitment to preach the social gospel. His fusion of Christian teachings and social consciousness remains in print and continues to promote KingÕs vision of love as a potent social and political force for change, the efficacy of religious faith in surmounting evil, and the vital need for true human integration, or, as he defined it, Ògenuine intergroup and interpersonal living.Ó This volume brought to the forefront KingÕs identity as a compelling, well educated, and compassionate preacher at a time when many whites knew him only as a civil rights leader.Book signed, Strength to Love, by Martin Luther King, Jr., inscribed to "Mrs. Blanche Pennington. With Best Wishes, deep respect, great admiration and warm Personal Regards. Martin Luther King, Jr." This is the only inscribed copy of Strength to Love we can recall seeing. The recipient was the mother of a woman friend of KingÕs, with whom he had an intimate relationship for years. Seller Inventory # 11112

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

I suspect that this is a secretarial signature, as it is a little smoother than more common examples of Dr. King's autograph. It's also possible, however, that he had time to sit and sign a few books unhurriedly one day & that this was the result. Please email with questions or to request more photos. Signed by Author(s).

Coretta Scott King helped lead the African-American Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s and was an active advocate for African-American equality. King met her husband while in college, and their participation escalated until they became central to the movement. In her early life, Coretta was an accomplished singer, and she often incorporated music into her civil rights work. King played a prominent role in the years after her husband's 1968 assassination when she took on the leadership of the struggle for racial equality herself and became active in the Women's Movement and the LGBT rights movement. King's 2005 funeral was attended by four of five living U.S. Presidents and by over 10,000 people. Seller Inventory # G-0961-6396

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.

Retrospective collection of portrait-photographs. One of the most beautiful photography books of our time. The First Hardcover Edition.

An austerely elegant production by Yuko Uchikawa: Oversize-volume format. Pictorial hard boards with titles on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Steve Schapiro.

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). Fans will pore over these inimitable portrait albums of Barbra Streisand as well as James Baldwin, Jacqueline Kennedy as well as Truman Capote. And of course, the very best photographs ever taken of Andy Warhol and The Factory that are NOT taken by Warhol. An absolute "must-have" title for Steve Schapiro collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen-marker on the title page by Steve Schapiro. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page.

A rare signed copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with black-and-white plates. One of the finest American photographers of our time. A fine copy.
