I have never really studied the end of Dr. Martin Luther King’s life. Instead, I have looked the rest of Dr. King’s life. I know that he entered Morehouse at the young age of 16. I know that he was exceptionally well trained. I know many of his speeches, sermons and lectures. I don’t know much about his death. Memphis. Lorraine Hotel. The famous picture. That’s about it. Oh, and James Earl Ray.
I know that high profile murder cases place an enormous amount of pressure on law enforcement to find the killer and bring that person or persons to justice. I know that James Earl Ray was a low level criminal. He didn’t have exceptional weapons training. For him to have killed Martin Luther King then get out of Memphis and out of the country is kind of weird.
Anyway, this video focuses on the impact of MLK.
