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.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Beginning in 1958, photojournalist Schulke was an invited member of King's circle, documenting the movement and the man for the next decade. The images included are startling for their intimacy and power.
Library Journal
Photojournalist Schulke provides a visual record of the Civil Rights leader's life.
Booknews
Photojournalist Flip Schulke first met Martin Luther King, Jr. on an assignment in 1958 and over time developed a friendship and professional relationship that lasted until King's murder in 1968. This beautiful picture book provides an intimate, reverential visual record of the civil rights leader's life during this period, accompanied by Schulke's personal commentary on both the moments pictured and their context. 10x11".

    A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

    Deeply moving...A must for anyone who admires the principles for which Dr. King lived and died. The personal stories add texture to the photographs...The one best book at conveying the power of the Civil Rights movement.
