Political Soul 1968-1975

40 years ago, on April 4, 1968, Reverend Martin Luther King Jr was killed by a single bullet to the head while on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel in downtown Memphis.The Nobel peace prize winner was just 39 years old.In death King became a martyr in the civil rights struggle, but in life he was a charismatic hero battling for racial equality, from the 1956 bus boycott in Montgomery, Alabama and non-violent protest marches through to his famous "I have a dream" speech in Washington in 1963."I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: 'We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.""I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."CD 101.
