Last night at the Mason Temple - fifty years ago, 1968 - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., made his first appearance this year in Memphis and spoke to a congregation of workers and supporters. During the speech he "called for Negro workers and students throughout the city to take a 'holiday' Friday and take part in a downtown march." "I wish all my white brothers and sisters would aid us in our hour of need," Dr. King said.
City Council member Bob James said "Of all the bad advice that the Negro leadership has had in Memphis lately, the very worst is the urging by Martin Luther King that all Negros indulge themselves in a general work stoppage." Upon arrival in Memphis, the Press-Scimitar reported first that Dr. King would not take part in a march Monday. Instead, he announced plans to return this Friday and lead workers and supporters in a demonstration march downtown.

Come join Bernice King and thousands of workers, thought leaders and activists April 2nd in Memphis for #IAM2018 . Let's continue the progress #MLK and so many others fought for 50 years ago. RSVP on our website and read the full article on @theatlantic.
The National Civil Rights Museum of Memphis, TN is inviting the nation to join in reflection and then to focus on the future. To recognize the exact moment that Dr. King was shot, there will be 39 bell chimes resonating in Memphis, one for each year he lived. Along with others across the U.S., several institutions with bell towers here in Greater Richmond have committed to joining the moment by ringing locally.
As part of the Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation enterprise, City of Richmond Mayor, Levar Stoney, as well as Virginia Union University Vice President, Dr. Corey Walker, along with others will answer the question set out by The National Civil Rights Museum, “Where Do We Go From Here?”. Please join them on the historic Virginia Union University campus along with students, faculty, administration and residents of Greater Richmond as we gather to move our city and region forward through a more inclusive narrative.
