The sign outside the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee, the site of the assassination of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., proclaims the 50th anniversary of the slain civil rights leader’s death.
Trip to National Civil Rights Museum is one worth taking


As we observe Black History Month, I find myself reflecting on a recent trip that taught me more about the history of our nation, including some of the cruelest times imaginable. It was a visit to Memphis, Tennessee, to the National Civil Rights Museum, and it was a trip well worth taking.

The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. spent his life fighting for equality. He did so until his death on April 4, 1968, in Memphis.
