Candidate and Supporter: Julian Bond (right) listens with lowered head as Andrew Young stresses a point at a news conference in Atlanta. During the conference, Young announced his candidacy for Congress from Georgia's 5th District. Bond endorsed Young's candidacy, as did Mrs. Coretta King, widow of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Young is Executive Vice President of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference founded by King.

Andrew Young (1932-present) is an American politician, diplomat, and activist. Young was an early leader in the Civil Rights Movement, serving as Executive Director of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC). He was a close confidant of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Julian Bond (1940- 2015) became a Civil Rights activist while in college. In 1965, he was elected to Georgia's state legislature, but his opposition to the war in Vietnam meant that it would take a U.S. Supreme Court ruling for him to be allowed to take his seat. Bond later served as the head of the Southern Poverty Law Center and of the NAACP.

Wire photographs were originally transmitted over phonelines, then later, by satellite. They were first used in the early 1920s. Associated Press became a leader with this. After pigment touch-ups, etc., the print is put into a drum (like a drum scanner). The image gets converted into audio tones that are transmitted. The tones are received and beamed onto photo-sensitive paper. Wire photographs are copies without originals---they are hybrid, transmitted objects.
