Capturing and Recapturing A Day in the Life of Martin Luther King, Jr. Photographs by esteemed photojournalist Santi Visalli

January 23 @ 10:00 am - February 3 @ 6:00 pm PST


In honor of the MLK Federal Holiday and Black History Month photojournalist Santi Visalli has quite a story to tell that is sure to resonate with the public today.  He was the photographer hired to document an event with Dr. King back on April 15, 1967. The assignment was from an Italian magazine, based in Milan, now long out of print, which only used two photos out of ten rolls of film he shot. The negatives were considered lost…until three years ago. All shot in black & white, the event was a 1967 Vietnam War Protest in New York City outside the U.N. and there are poignant images of the nearly 125,000 people at the march, along with Dr. King addressing the crowd. Visalli hopes the photos will inform current generations about MLK’s advocacy for peace in addition to his lifelong pursuit for Civil Rights.  

SPECIAL NOTE:  The exhibit will be available to schools and community organizations that may wish to visit the exhibit as an educational opportunity about the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  Contact Helene Schneider, curator to make any arrangements for group visits. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see these photos in such an intimate space.
