The Wider Image: Memphis 50 years after MLK's death
Side dishes including (clockwise from top right) cabbage, sweet potatoes, collard greens, rice, beans and macaroni-and-cheese are ready to be served at Ms. Girlee's Soul Food Restaurant in Memphis, Tennessee, U.S., March 29, 2018. The restaurant is owned by Henry Leach and his family. Leach, who participated in the strike 50 years ago, said Martin Luther King came to the city for justice, not violence. "He came to help us get what we wanted. Like I tell you, he became like a father to us," the former sanitation worker said recently. REUTERS/Jonathan Ernst SEARCH "MLK ERNST" FOR THIS STORY.
