Who Is Martin Luther King Jr. To Us, 50 Years Later?

Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee, 50 years ago on April 4, 1968, setting off a period of mourning, reflection and anger that gripped America. He was in Memphis to rally support for striking sanitation workers, who were protesting unsafe working conditions, and while on the balcony of his room at the Lorraine Motel (now the site of the National Civil Rights Museum), he was shot once and fatally by James Earl Ray, from the bathroom of a nearby boarding house. By the age of 39, King had become a primary leader of the civil rights movement and had been active since the 1950s as a minister and founder of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference.

Trump Press Sec Blasts Media Over Crowd

President Donald Trump's press secretary Sean Spicer has slammed the media for trying to "lessen the enthusiasm" of Trump's inauguration through reporting on crowd size and a bust of Martin Luther King Jr. in the Oval Office. In a combative tone, Spicer insisted that Trump's swearing in was "the largest audience to witness an inauguration, period, both in person and around the world." But photos clearly show that the crowds did not stretch all the way to the Washington Monument, a contrast to Barack Obama's 2009 swearing in, when an estimated 1.8 million people attended. Ratings also were lower for Trump's swearing in than they were in 2009. Trump's team scheduled the press statement late on Saturday afternoon, after news networks spent much of the day covering the Women's Ma...
