Synopsis

The Assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr 4 April 1968 by Terry Collins

The Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., a brilliant speaker and one of the key leaders of the civil rights movement, was in Memphis to speak. On the night of 3 April 1968, he delivered one of his most oft-quoted speeches to a packed church. The next evening, he and some of his closest confidantes were leaving their motel room to meet some colleagues for dinner. Something horrible was about to unfold. This graphic non-fiction book tells the story of one of the saddest days in American history.
