Mr. Happy Meets Ernest Withers
Ernest Withers was born in Memphis Tennesse to a postal worker father and exhibited interest in photography. His images captured America for nearly 60 years, preserving the good and the bad, in particular, racism. He traveled with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. during his public life. Withers' coverage of the Emmett Till murder trial brought national attention to the racial violence taking place during the l950s in Mississippi, among other places. He died October 15, 2007 at age 85. Notice his headstone is shiny black and shaped like a camera.
