Celebrate Martin Luther King with 'Builder Levy: Humanity in the Streets'

Featured image—of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with Mrs. Du Bois Peck Williams, Dr. W.E.B. Du Bois's only granddaughter, at the Freedomways reception after the Dr. W.E.B. Du Bois Centennial Tribute at Carnegie Hall in Manhattan, where Dr. King gave the keynote speech on February 23, 1968—is reproduced from Builder Levy: Humanity in the Streets, New York City 1960s–1980s. Other photos capture civil rights marches, protests, school children playing, families at Coney Island, members of the Black Panther party (including Malcolm X), empty lots, anti-war rallies, kids jumping rope, card games, carrier pigeons and more. "There is a sense of collaboration with the people who are not invisible to the photographer," Deborah Willis writes. "It is a remarkable visual story about beauty and humanity that must not be overlooked."
