Civil Rights Photographer actually an FBI informer…

Interesting article in The New York Times a couple days ago about the late Ernest C. Withers, author of a number of iconic images of the civil rights movement.  The ’60s aren’t really my era (obviously), but you just have to love how the old FBI had its fingers everywhere…Eh, what else is new.  What a number of people are apparently more upset about is that it seems Mr. Withers was paid to keep tabs on meetings and leadership, as opposed to just sitting down with agents to be interviewed on occasion, as apparently many folk did.  Some are saying the story isn’t conclusive.  The full story is here: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/09/14/us/14photographer.html
