A half century ago, Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. came to Memphis to march in support of the city's striking sanitation workers. It was the last trip the Baptist minister turned civil rights leader would make in the name of social justice.
Archie Hurt, who regards Martin Luther King Jr. as a prophet, stands in front of his house in Memphis, Tennessee, U.S., March 29, 2018. Hurt, has been painting parts of Biblical scripture interspersed with his thoughts on religion, politics and current events on the front of his house for ten years and twenty years before that when it was his brother's house. His hat reads "Cry to the Lord". JONATHAN ERNST/REUTERS
