Ernest Withers may not be a familiar name to most Americans, 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 Withers, an African-American photographer who traveled extensively with Martin Luther King, Jr. What no one knew was that Withers was an informant for the FBI. A book signing follows the program.
