My Family's Distant Connection to Dr. King

Lorraine Motel

We need to be gentle teachers, not shame and blame, or worse fill ourselves with the very hatred that we seek to undue in others. He noted that he has been part of the struggle for 50 years, telling a reporter: "I'm still anxious and frustrated".

You can see where the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was standing when the single fatal shot struck him in the head. The man, later identified as Marcus Wayne Chenault Jr. of OH, fired his gun, hitting Alberta King, church deacon Edward Boykin and congregation member Jimmie Mitchell.

The wreath-laying ceremony at the MLK Statue & Memorial at S. Claiborne Avenue and MLK Blvd was canceled due to the weather, but that didn't stop people from coming out and paying homage to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Now 70, she said she came to Memphis not only to honor King's legacy but to call for his work to be continued.

King and his advisers, Reed said, realized that "simply passing anti-discrimination legislation would do little to address the economic disparity" that impacted black workers.

One year later he became the youngest Nobel Peace Prize victor at 35 for his non-violent resistance. But rather than despair, the resounding message repeated at the church was one of resilience, resolve, and a renewed commitment to King's legacy and unfinished work.
