Abstract:

Photojournalist Ernest C. Withers was born on August 7, 1922, and grew up in Memphis, Tennessee. He got his start as a military photographer while serving in the South Pacific during World War II. Upon returning to a segregated Memphis after the war, he chose photography as his avocation and profession. Withers photographed key civil rights moments, capturing everything from the Montgomery Bus Boycott to the Memphis sanitation workers strike. In addition, Withers photographed Negro League baseball players and those jazz and blues musicians who frequented Memphis' Beale Street. His early photographs of musicians like Elvis Presley, B.B. King, Ike and Tina Turner, Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin are legendary. Withers' photography was featured in many art galleries and exhibitions. Withers passed away on October 15, 2007.
