When Did Martin Luther Die?

Martin Luther King Jr was a powerful black leader that had a dream that all would be able to live together in peace. Unfortunately he was assassinated on April 4, 1968 in Memphis Tennessee. His body was returned to Atlanta where the funeral took place on April 9, 1968 at Ebenezer Baptist Church on Auburn Avenue. I wish Martin was alive to see the first African American become the President of the United States. I’m sure this would have mad him very proud. Look here for more information:
