August 28 marks the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, a key event that changed the course of civil rights and American history. Throughout the years, Dr. King has become an icon of promise, justice and hope for millions — especially to those within the poorest and most segregated communities. Camilo Jose Vergara, known on Flickr as Camilo Time tracker, has been photographing urban America for more than four decades and can attest to Dr. King’s everlasting influence.
“I have seen many images on the walls of urban America,” Camilo tells The Weekly Flickr. “But the one that stands out still after all these years, are the images of Martin Luther King, Jr.”
