Abstract:

Photographer Robert Sengstacke was born in Chicago on May 4, 1943. He attended the University of Chicago Lab School, boarding school at Pennsylvania’s Manumit School, Chicago’s Howalton Day School and Hyde Park High School before graduating from Central YMCA High School in 1962. He attended Bethune Cookman College in Florida only to return to Chicago after three and a half years. Learning to shoot from Le Mont Mac Lemore, Billy Abernathy and Bob Black of the Chicago Sun-Times in the mid-1950s, Sengstacke’s thousands of black and white photographs of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Muhammad Ali, Gwendolyn Brooks, Amiri Imamu Baraka and other well-known figures, places and events were widely published. His compositions Spiritual Grace and Saviour’s Day, included in the “We Shall Overcome” exhibit, are from his days as staff photographer for the Nation Of Islam’s periodical, Muhammad Speaks. Sengstacke has gained recognition nationwide for his photography and his work with the Chicago Defender.
