Dr. King remembered 55 years after his murder

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated 55 years ago today, on the balcony of the Lorraine Hotel in Memphis, TN.

The night before his murder, King gave a speech at the Mason Temple in support of the Memphis sanitation works that were on strike. He closed his remarks with the following painfully prophetic statement:

“I may not get there with you, but I want you to know tonight that we as a people will get to the Promised Land.”

The struggle continues!
