In commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the death of Dr. Martin Luther King, Memphis International Airport is hosting an exhibit of photographs by renowned photojournalist Ernest C. Withers, who also photographed other notable individuals, including President John F. Kennedy, Mahalia Jackson, Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, President Richard Nixon, Elvis Presley, Isaac Hayes, and James Brown.
Through the end of April, travelers can view candid photographs by Withers documenting Dr. King’s last days in Memphis and the events following his assassination on April 4, 1968.
The photographs are displayed in Concourse B, just beyond the security checkpoint through the end of April.
