I just saw these previously unreleased photos from Life magazine that were taken on the day that Martin Luther King was shot. Most of the photos were taken at the Lorraine Motel, the site of the murder. They were so powerful I felt that I should share them with you.
The Lorraine Motel is now the National Civil Rights Museum. I encourage you to spend several hours there the next time you go to Memphis. You will find it to be an educational and moving experience.
