The Leader and the Photographer

On April 15, 1967, during a march in New York City from Central Park to the United Nations, photographer Benedict Fernandez met Martin Luther King, Jr.

Less than a year later, the great civil rights leader was dead, killed by an assassin's bullet. But during his last days, Fernandez snapped some of the most illuminating images of the man and his turbulent times. In these photographs, we see King as a father, a husband, and an activist whose battles have taken their toll.

Click on the slide show to see a selection of Fernandez's photographs. You can also read and quiz yourself about Martin Luther King Jr.'s life.
