Peppler, Jim


Anderson's back is to the camera; he is pointing to the left and appears to be speaking the other people on the steps. Martin Luther King spoke to a gathering at the church building the day this photograph was shot. The image was taken for (but not used in) the article and photo spread "Rallying Support for Poor People's Stay in Washington, " which appeared on page 3 of The Southern Courier for February 24-25, 1968. The issue is available online:
