Ernest Withers is one of my all time favorite photojournalist. A native Memphian like myself, Withers began his career taking photographs of the segregated south in the height of the Civil Rights Movement during the 1950s and 1960s. He also is well known for his works covering Negro league baseball and the Memphis Blues scene of the 20th century. His works spanned over 60 years and documented much of the dark history our country has. Withers and his wife Dorothy had eight children together. He passed away after suffering from complications of a major stroke, in Memphis, Tennessee on October 15, 2007, at the age of 85.
