Incredible! Ernest Withers has taken over a million photos in his life time since the 1940s, and as a result has captured some incredibly powerful, historic and iconic moments and personalities. He was Martin Luther King's official photography (wow), as such his documentation of the Civil Rights movement is pretty much unparalleled. This gallery is on Beale Street and open in the evenings: it's impossible not to be moved by the images taken right there on that very street in the aftermath of riots.

Wow! See the Civil Rights movement through the photographs of Martin Luther King, Jr's personal photographer. You may have seen his photos before, but there are plenty of never-before-seen ones that will get to you. It's a great look back at important parts of our nation's history and worth the donation to pop in and take a look around.
