A Rainy Anniversary Memento

On this day in 1968, during a rally supporting black sanitation workers in Memphis, Tennessee...

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
January 15, 1929 - April 4, 1968

"The hope of a secure and livable world lies with disciplined nonconformists who are dedicated to justice, peace and brotherhood."

Read an excerpt from Strength to Love, King's 1963 book that explains the central element of King's philosophy of nonviolence: his belief in a divine, loving presence that binds all life.

Read from dozens of articles investigating the King assassination. (Top photo of witnesses on the balcony sourced at this site.)
