Who was Ernest Withers? Most Americans may not know his name, but they know his photographs, which are some of the most iconic images of the civil rights movement. In Bluff City, author Preston Lauterbach examines the career of Ernest Withers, an African-American photographer who traveled extensively with Martin Luther King, Jr. during his public life. What no one knew, was that Withers was an informant and an essential asset to the FBI. A book signing will follow the program.
