Photograph showing Joseph Lowery voicing his dismay on February 22, 2000, over alleged racial discrimination practices at the Lockheed Martin manufacturing plant in Marietta, Georgia. Behind him are Lockheed workers who came to lend support to the protest. He stands with his mouth open as if shouting, and his right index finger is pointing forward. They stand in front of a "Do Not Enter" sign.
Lowery, a distinguished civil rights leader and respected Methodist minister, helped to organize, along with Martin Luther King Jr., the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC).
