Series 3
Photographs, circa 1923-2004 [bulk 1950-1990]
Box 13, 30, OP4

Scope and Content Note

The series includes loose photographs not arranged by the Vivians with other materials. The photographs encompass primarily the 1950s-1980s, but there are also images of C.T. as a child as well as some later images. Most of the photographs include civil rights leaders or document marches and protests. Many of the images were taken by Elaine Tomlin, the SCLC's official photographer, most likely as part of her work there. These images consist of images of the SCLC staff as well as other civil rights leaders such as Ralph Abernathy, Joseph and Evelyn Lowery, Martin Luther and Coretta Scott King, and Jesse Jackson. There are also images of the 20th anniversary of the March on Washington, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Drum Major of Justice Award dinners, and Resurrection City.

Arrangement Note

Arranged in alphabetical order.

Processing Note

Images with no other identification are filed by the photographer's name when available. Elaine Tomlin's images are arranged with other photographs of SCLC members and activities as she was the official photographer for the organization.
