Ernest C. Withers

01 Sep

Ernest C. Withers recorded important events in the Civil Rights Movement.  He was a Photographer.  

Ernest C. Withers first started taking pictures in the 8th grade when he got his first camera as a gift from his sister. When he went into the Army in 1943 he became a Military Photographer.  Men within his squad would ask him to take pictures of them to send back  home. Withers then opened a Photography business.  He took pictures of Martin Luther King Jr, the Emmett Till trial, Satchel Paige, Brook Benton, Elvis, Issac Hayes and many other notable events and people. Ernest C Withers did not realize at the time that he was recording history, he was trying to make living to support his family.

Ernest C Wither departed this world in 2007 and left for the world to see history through pictures.
