This week on The Tavis Smiley Show
On April 4, 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was killed by a shot from a high-powered rifle while standing on the second-floor balcony of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, TN. The Lorraine is now the site of the National Civil Rights Museum, which recently completed a $28 million renovation.
Last week, on the 46th anniversary of Dr. King’s assassination, a group of renowned civil rights lawyers, scholars and activists gathered to celebrate the museum's reopening with a forum on the signing 50 years ago of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This week, we broadcast excerpts from three panels moderated by Tavis.
You can also hear the entire forum as it was recorded, unedited and without interruption, including the invocation by Rabbi Micah Greenstein of Temple Israel in Memphis, performances by the Elite Chamber Singers, and a question-and-answer session with audience members.
