Commentary
Reverend Ralph Abernathy's press conference on election at Friendship Baptist Church. Members of the Baptist Ministers Council meet Abernathy outside the press room. Left to right: Reverend Locket, Reverend Abernathy, Reverend W. W. Woods and Reverend W. E. Simms, Miami.

Ralph Abernathy (1926-1990) was a Baptist minister who, with Martin Luther King, Jr., organized the historic Montgomery Bus Boycotts. Abernathy co-founded the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and was a major Civil Rights figure, serving as close adviser to King and later assuming SCLC Presidency.

Materials
Ferrotyped prints have a sensitive surface, usually shiny and thinner, because they are put through a press while still wet. Ferrotyping makes the surface of the photograph smoother. Light does not scatter as much on a smoother surface, so this increases contrast. That makes ferrotyped images better for press photography.
