PowerPoint Presentation:

Margaret Bourke-White Quiet scenes from a revolutionary life

PowerPoint Presentation:

In 1946, Mohandas Gandhi sits next to a spinning wheel, a device used to make yarn or thread; the now-famous image came to symbolize the notion of Indian self-sufficiency — and thus independence from British rule.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Gandhi often went on hunger strikes as a method of anti-government resistance. Here in 1948, he's seen ending his last fast, which was intended to persuade Hindus and Muslims to work towards peace. Mere weeks after this picture was taken, a Hindu extremist would assassinate him as he headed to an evening prayer meeting.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Gandhi ends his final fast in 1948

PowerPoint Presentation:

Before she was allowed to photograph Gandhi, Bourke-White was informed she would need to learn the spinning wheel. (She caught on quickly.) Her now-famous images of Gandhi working at his wheel, like this one from 1946, became an enduring representation of Gandhi's legacy.
