He shot all the famous black and white pics of Martin Luther King when he marched and gave his powerful speeches. He also marched along side of King during protests. He shot the pic of the people being showered by the fire hoses with water during protesting. I seen so many of his private pics of Martin Luther King that have not been viewed by public eyes.. WOW! He even shot Rosa Parks... (she changed black and white history by refusing to give up Her seat on the city bus to a white woman that wanted to sit down. Back then black people had to sit in the back of the bus by law and if a white person needed to sit you had to get up. Well, Rosa Parks was arrested for not giving up Her seat and major protesting and boycotting of the city bus by black people and some white people made a change in the laws as well as leaders standing up for this cause. Blacks after that were allowed to sit where they wanted on the bus.) .... :) .... If you are not familiar with this history, do your research it's an eye opener.
Bob Adelman also shot the famous black and white pic of Malcolm X holding the newspaper and giving the middle finger. What I really respect about Bob Adelman is his passionate dedication to a historical cause that has given people a window into the harsh reality of racism and segregation of the past and present. Documenting profound and key points and people in our time, capturing it in compelling black and white photography and story telling. He has many new books and projects coming soon.

View some of his work to get visuals on what I am saying. As it's said pictures speak a thousand words! One of My favorite books he shot the pics for is located in his site and it's called "Mine eyes have seen". The cover of the book is of Martin Luther King and his wife Coretta King by his side as they are marching in a protest. Bob Adelman has personally signed the following books of his and gave them to Me ... "Mine eyes have seen", "Visions of Liberty", "Gentlemen of Leisure", "Remembering Grace", and "The Great Life Photographers" ( a book he produced gathering all the great photographers of "Life'" magazine and putting their pics in this one book).
I hold a very special place in My heart and soul with Bob Adelman not only because we go way back as friends but because I also have revolutionist in My blood and I understand what it's like to fight for something that you believe in. I am fully aware of the injustices in this world, segregation and racism is still alive and kicking. I am down with black power as well as all people uniting as one and fighting as one for the sake of harmony and peace. My black power mentality also comes from 2 of My uncles being in the Black Panthers when I was a child and viewing the struggles for equality.
Bob Adelman also shot Me while I lived in New York years ago. Here is My favorite classic Domina Erotica black and white photo shoot series he did of Me....... We are shooting again very soon, I can't wait! See you next week for dinner in Bal Harbor Bob.... kisses Domina Erotica
