Overview

He Had a Dream is a visual record of King's life and work by the only man King trusted and to whom he gave such complete access. Schulke's images, combined with his commentary on both the moment and its place in the context of the civil rights movement, create a more immediate and revealing portrait of King than we have had before.
As a young photojournalist just out of college in the early fifties, Flip Schulke moved to Miami and began covering social issues. In 1958, while working as a freelancer for Jet and Ebony, he was assigned to photograph Martin Luther King. Afterwards, the two men talked late into the night about King's philosophy. Schulke became convinced that King's plans would change the face of the country. At King's invitation, he began photographing behind the scenes at Southern Christian Leadership Conference meetings and eventually became committed to covering King and the growing civil rights movement. For a decade before King's death, Schulke was as close to him and his inner circle as a photographer could be. He was privy to momentous events public and private, and always he was photographing. This book is the result.
