Dr. Martin Luther King Was Assassinated On This Date In 1968    He was, more than any single man, the voice and the instrument of the second American revolution.  He materialized out of the streets and the Jim Crow churches of the South a dozen years ago, preaching brotherhood and nonviolence to a divided and violent land.  For a time, incredibly, it worked- until the very forces he had helped set in in motion swept past him and turned the black ghettos of America into battlegrounds.

Memphis Tennessee | Martin Luther King was shot here in 1968 | I was only 2 years old. Strangely, I remember the panic visiting my aunt and uncle. We were advised to stay in and away from windows. Being an adult, I look back into this memory with sadness. What a great man. ~Ā~
