At the height of the civil rights movement, Ernest Withers took some of its most legendary photographs: Martin Luther King, Jr., riding a newly integrated bus; Emmett Till's uncle pointing across the courtroom at his nephew's killer; scores of African-American protestors carrying signs reading "I am a man."
