Between Race and Ethnicity: Greek-America in the Times of Black Lives Matter

With ritualistic consistency, the Greek-American community commemorates Black History month with the iconic Times cover of Reverent Martin Luther King and Archbishop Iakovos at the entrance of the Brown Chapel African Methodist Episcopal Church. The Archbishop stares majestically down directly into the camera, marking his stance and status in the present, while Martin Luther king , head turned up and to the left, gazes into the future. It is a compelling and evocative photograph. There are other photos as well that show the two men in more intimate moments and sharing the same vision.
