Today April 4th marks the 48th anniv. of Martin Luther King's murder by the US gov't.
Today April 4th marks the 48th anniv. of Martin Luther King's murder by the US gov' 1968-scroll down for 2 song links and a statement I wrote.

National Civil Rights Museum to hold ceremony Monday for 48th anniversary of MLK assassination
The ceremony will include the annual changing of the wreath and a moment of silence.

2 songs I wrote:
The Ballad Of Martin Luther King-

April 4, 1968-April 4, 2016: 48th anniv. of the US gov't. assassination of Martin Luther King--King family lawyer William Pepper wrote 2 books"An Act Of State" and "Orders To Kill" describing the gov't. conspiracy that murdered King-he found the convicted assassin, James Earl Ray, was set up to take the rap, but actually a white Memphis cop killed King, backed by 2 US Army sharpshooters in case he missed. Dr. King was our greatest American-how dare our government take him from us !! He tried to save the soul of our nation.Bitter tears shed for our prophet and brother Martin. He was in Memphis that day , organizing the poorest of the poor, the sanitation workers.Former Boston City Councilor Chuck Turner said once that it was just as important to know how King died as to know how he lived. It was his stand against the Vietnam war that the US gov't. couldnt tolerate. MLK- "Our choice-non-violence or non-existence".
