Lee Friedlander: Prayer Pilgrimage for Freedom

Text by Martin Luther King, Jr., A. Philip Randolph, Roy Wilkins.

Lee Friedlander: Prayer Pilgrimage for Freedom

Early work from Lee Friedlander capturing a pivotal moment in the Civil Rights Movement

On May 17, 1957, through the generosity of Bayard Rustin, Lee Friedlander was given full access to photograph the participants of the Prayer Pilgrimage for Freedom in Washington, D.C. This extraordinary event, organized by Mr. Rustin, as well as A. Philip Randolph, Roy Wilkins and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., brought together many of the great thinkers and leaders of the period, and was a pivotal moment in the Civil Rights Movement.
Friedlander's photographs depict the famous individuals at the event—Mahalia Jackson, Ruby Dee and Harry Belafonte, among many other luminaries of the African-American community—but they also pay particular attention to the 25,000 men, women and children who gathered to give voice and energy to the ideas embattled by the movement.
The 58 previously unpublished photographs gathered here are among Friedlander's earliest work. Also included in this publication is the typescript of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "Give Us the Ballot" speech and additional ephemera from the march produced in facsimile.

We honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with Lee Friedlander's 'Prayer Pilgrimage for Freedom'

We honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with Lee Friedlander's 'Prayer Pilgrimage for Freedom'

On April 5, 1957, Philip Randolph, Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Roy Wilkins announced, "As the Founding Americans prayed for strength and wisdom in the wilderness of a new land, as the slaves and their descendants prayed for emancipation and human dignity, as men of every color and clime in time of crisis have sought Divine guidance, so we now, in these troubled and momentous years, call upon all who love justice and dignity and liberty, who love their country, and who love mankind, to join in a Prayer Pilgrimage to Washington on May 17, 1957, where we shall renew our strength, communicate our unity, and rededicate our efforts, firmly but peaceably, to the attainment of freedom." Photographer Lee Friedlander heeded the call, and his previously unpublished photographs of this historic event are collected in Prayer Pilgrimage for Freedom, clothbound with tipped-on cover image, from Eakins Press Foundation. Featured image, © Lee Friedlander/Eakins Press Foundation, is of Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. at the podium, with Bishop Sherman Lawrence Greene, Bishop William Jacob Walls, Roy Wilkins and A. Philip Randolph in the first row. continue to blog
