The Assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr: 04/04/1968 12:00:00 AM

by Terry Collins
Illustrated by Dante Ginevra

The Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., a brilliant speaker and one of the key leaders of the civil rights movement, was in Memphis to speak. On the night of April 3, 1968, he delivered one of his most oft-quoted speeches to a packed church. The next evening, he and some of his closest confidants were leaving their motel room to meet some colleagues for dinner. Something horrible was about to unfold. This graphic nonfiction book tells the story of one of the saddest days in American history.
