Wonderful vintage semi-glossy 6 x 7.75 photo of Reverend King, his lapel bearing a pin that reads, "I Believe in Human Dignity," signed and inscribed in black ballpoint, "To Captain Edwards, With Warm Personal Regards, Martin Luther King, Jr.” Archivally matted and framed to an overall size of 9.25 x 11. In very good to fine condition, with a tape stain to the upper left corner, a light scuff to King's cheek, and light rippling to the bottom. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA and a letter of provenance from the son of the recipient, stating that this "signed photo was a gift to my late father, Richard T. Edwards, during the mid-1960s. Dr. King presented this autographed photo to Captain Edwards for directing the security detail on his visits to Philadelphia. In 1964 my father was named Deputy Police Commissioner of Philadelphia, the first African-American to ever achieve such position."
