Honoring Martin Luther King

During the month of January we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in an exhibition presenting a selection of photographs by Dan Budnik and Susan Berger. 

Photographs by photojournalist Dan Budnik take us to the time of the Selma-Montgomery March, March on Washington DC, and the Voting Rights Act. Dan Budnik documented social, political and cultural change in the world for 55 years.  He was at the heart of the civil rights movement. A small number of signed books, “Marching to the Freedom Dream” are available.

From the essay, “Inside the Dream”, James Enyeart wrote: “It was Budnik’s desire to help reveal the power of non-violence through the courage and commitment of the marchers, and their desire to assign King’s manifesto to that realm of history where humanity succeeds rather than fails.”

Photographs by Susan Berger in this exhibition resulted from her travels across the United States to neighborhoods with streets named in honor of Martin Luther King. These photographs have been selected from her book “Life and Soul – American Streets Honoring Martin Luther King”. Copies of Susan’s book are available. 

From Susan’s forward to her book “I can’t help thinking about where a street named for Dr. King should be placed. Should it be in the neighborhood where the people most directly affected by him reside? Or should it be located in a place where all residents, regardless of race can be reminded of him?” The pictures selected for this exhibit are sure to evoke these same questions in the thoughts of the viewers.
