The Civil Rights Digital Library writes of this photo, one of a series of mugshots of Martin Luther King Jr:

Scanned image from one of the Montgomery County, Alabama Sheriff’s Department’s mug shot volumes showing Martin Luther King, Jr. and other African American men arrested on February 21, 1956 for their leadership during the Montgomery Bus Boycott. The books of mug shots were divided by race and gender.

The Civil Rights Digital Library received support from a National Leadership Grant for Libraries awarded to the University of Georgia by the Institute of Museum and Library Services for the aggregation and enhancement of partner metadata.
