As I have written here previously, we visited the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis back in 1999. The museum is housed within the former Lorraine Motel, where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was gunned down 41 years ago tomorrow evening.
This morning, I heard on the news that LIFE magazine has posted a gallery of never-before-published photos by Henry Groskinsky titled “The Night MLK Was Murdered: A Photographer’s Story” on their website.
Martin Luther King’s last days
Rev. Kyles’ vivid and moving recollection of that April 4th absolutely devastated me, and I ordered a CD copy of the segment from NPR which I still own. Unfortunately, NPR no longer provides an online audio file of that piece.
