Martin Luther King Jr. Remembered
Photographed by Flip Schulke

Flip Schulke met and became a close friend of Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. while on assignment for Ebony magazine in 1958. Their friendship enabled Schulke to document Dr. King and the civil rights movement for the next decade. Winner of the 1995 Kodak Crystal Eagle Award, Schulke was recognized for his "documentation of a vital social issue [which] has changed the way people live or what they believe."

Flip Schulke's photographic collection, which includes more than 300,000 original images—10,000 of which are of Dr. King and the civil rights movement—is housed in the Center for American History at the University of Texas at Austin. Forty-four framed photographs, featuring Dr. King, his family, and images from the civil rights movement, are now available as a traveling exhibit.
