12 of 17: A Montgomery (Ala.) Sheriff's Department booking photo of The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. taken Feb 22, 1956, with the words ''Dead and the date of 4-4-68'' scrolled on it, is shown Friday, July 23, 2004, in Montgomery, Ala. Dozens of photographs from the civil rights-era were recently discovered in a storage room used by the Montgomery County Sheriff's office. Chief Deputy Derrick Cunningham said he was performing some house cleaning duties when he found a photo-album containing well-preserved mug shots of protesters who were arrested during the Montgomery bus boycott in 1956.
