Oct 13- National Civil Rights Museum, Memphis, Tennessee

We toured the National Civil Rights Museum, located in the Lorraine Motel where Dr MLK, Jr was killed in Memphis. Quite impressive.


Room 306 on the second floor window was Dr. King’s room. It is restored to how it looked on that April day in 1968. Wreath is placed on the balcony where he was shot.


Automobiles like these were parked here.


Museum includes the boarding house where James Earl Ray shot from a bathroom window.


We lived through quite a decade of the 60's didn't we?
