Commentary
Dr. Martin Luther King, center, leader of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, leads a parade of Civil Rights marchers from a rally in a church to Lafayette Park, opposite the White House. Others are unidentified. The march capped two days of street corner rallies in Washington. Dr. King said that with the voting rights legislation being signed into law on August 6 by President Johnson, he hoped to register 900,000 blacks to vote in Southern states.

Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968) was an American Baptist minister and activist who became the most visible spokesperson and leader in the Civil Rights Movement from 1954 until his assassination in 1968.

Materials
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.
