The highlight of this lot is probably a portrait taken of King during his first public visit to St. Louis, 10 x 7 1/2 inches, 10 April 1957 (illustrated). An original print rather than a wire photo, it bears the inked stamp of the photographer Edward Burkhardt on verso, and a strip of 4 negatives is taped down. Also included are a smaller original print of King with Rev. Abraham Lincoln Davis Jr. and Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth, 6 x 7 3/4 inches, 15 February 1957 (the day of the second organizational meeting of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference); King in Montgomery, AL, urging a bus boycott on 22 March 1956 (later 30 July 1963 AP print); with Floyd McKissick in Grenada, MS, 15 June 1966; in collage with white Chicago leaders, 17 August 1966; at a Chicago news conference on urban rioting, 26 July 1967; and with Coretta Scott King, preparing to leave for his 5-day jail sentence in Birmingham, 30 October 1967.
