This particular image is published for the first time, available exclusively through gallery. In this series, we present Harry Adams' photography of iconic Americans, some of them well known throughout the world, not as African Americans, but simply, Americans, who have brought their talents, fortitude, creativity to the world.

Their indelible influence changed the world. ----- ABOUT THIS PHOTO: - 16 x 20 in. C Print on classic photography paper - sold unframed (available upon inquiry): About this photo: On the podium, John F. Kennedy, with Councilwoman Phillips from Milwaukee taken at the Shrine Auditorium July 10, 1960. The photo was taken during a rally at Shrine Auditorium led by the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. at the Democratic platform. According to the file records at the Hollywood Reporter: “JFK and Martin Luther King Jr. appeared together at an NAACP rally at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, Calif. Kennedy was hooted at when he took the stage by many of the 7,000 blacks in attendance because during the campaign, he spoke before segregated audiences. But when JFK finished his speech, in which he vowed to end segregation, he was wildly cheered. And after Kennedy spoke, King took the stage and brought the crowd to its feet with a refrain that three years later would echo through the ages in his "I Have a Dream" speech.” Introduction to Harry Adams: Harry Adams (b. 1918, Arkansas – d. 1988, Los Angeles ) was one of the best-known members of the Los Angeles African American community. Adams worked as a freelancer for the California Eagle and Los Angeles Sentinel for 35 years. He trained at the California School of Photography and Graphic Design and although he took these photographs as part of his journalistic assignments, his artistic ability to capture the essence of a particular moment in time earned him the moniker “One Shot Harry”. His collection is particularly rich in its images of the prominent African Americans who defined his era, but also of ordinary life, documenting social life, schools, civil rights organizations, music, sports and cultural events. “His work is not only a contribution to journalism, but also part of our history.” LA Times.
