For nearly two years Bob Fitch was staff photographer for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), of which Martin Luther King Jr. was president. Following Dr. King's assassination on April 4, 1968, the King family asked Bob to document the events surrounding the funeral, as well as the intimate experiences of a grieving family.
