40 Years Have Passed Since MLKs Assassination On April 4, 1968, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., 39, was shot to death as he stood on a balcony of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tenn.; the killing sparked a wave of riots across the U.S. (James Earl Ray later pleaded guilty to assassinating King, then spent the rest of his life claiming his innocence and attempting to withdraw his guilty plea; he died in prison in 1998.)

Hard to imagine that almost two months later Bobby Kennedy would be killed. they were the last voices of reason.

I remember going through Newark after it was safe with my parents.And asking about the fire.And that also was the end of the Asbury Park amusement area the closest ocean one.And our favorite as kids.It never made a comeback sadly.I also agree with you Eric.

Segregation or no segregation, I believe blacks had to pay taxes just like everyone else, Wikiriwhi.
