Explore photographs of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and critical moments of the civil rights movement. The photographs reflect the activists’ struggle, courage and hopefulness. Dr. King described this dynamic as having the faith "to rise from the fatigue of despair to the buoyancy of hope" in his October 1963 speech given on the Notre Dame campus. Decades later these photographs continue to resonate with, in the words of Dr. King, "the challenges we face" in the ongoing pursuit of a more just society.
