my uncle kirk @march on washington for jobs and freedom!
A few days ago, I was searching for 1968 photos. I came across a reference to color photos from the March on Washington for Jobs & Freedom. I scrolled through a few images and stopped at the photograph above. And I recognized a familiar face. My Uncle Kirk!!!
He's in the lower left frame of the photograph, sitting in a chair. He's the one with the widow's peak and the furrowed brow.
I showed the photograph to my mom and she agreed that it's him. She remembers a number of her sisters and brothers going to the march. She didn't make it because she wasn't feeling well.
Uncle Kirk, Kirkland Davis, passed away a few years ago. I think about him often. How wonderful to have found this image of him, to learn something new about him, and to have this personal connection to such a large, historic event.
