One of the best opportunities I’ve ever received as a freelance writer has been my involvement with the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s assassination. Living in Memphis has provided a unique, first hand experience for me. During the week long series of events, I was able to sit in a special media room with other journalists and interview two of Dr. King’s children. I will blog about that experience later in the month.
The following link is an article I wrote about what I saw and heard at the world headquarters of the Church of God in Christ (COGIC) and the site of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s now-prophetic last address. I am personally and professionally proud to share it, and I hope enjoy reading it. http://www.blackpressusa.com/mlk50-mountaintop-speech-remembrance-summons-crowd-for-reflection-action/
