Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is photographed here participating in the Selma to Montgomery March for voting rights in March of 1965. This campaign led to the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. However, it was King's position in opposition to the American war against Vietnam, advanced in April of 1967, that intensified the US Government's determination to bring about his liquidation one year later in 1968. Photographed right behind King is James Forman, who was then executive secretary of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC).
