Mrs. Coretta Scott King arrives at Ebenezer Baptist Church. This was the first time that there was an official gathering to honor and celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on January 15, 1969 in Atlanta, GA., nine months after Dr. King was assasinated [sic]. That's my reflection in the car window.
This black and white photograph shows Coretta Scott King arriving by car to the Ebenezer Baptist Church for a birthday commemoration for Martin Luther King Jr. in 1969. There is an unidentified man between Coretta Scott King and the open door of the car. The reflection of the photographer can be seen in the car window. A crowd of unidentified people can be seen behind the car. The back of the photograph has a manufacturer's mark, photographer's stamp and a handwritten inscription.
