On Thursday, the nation marked the 45th anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. in Memphis Tennessee.
To commemorate the occasion, The Commercial Appeal, our sister newspaper in Memphis, put together a special website that examines the last 32 hours of Dr. King's life - leading up to the moment the shot rang out at 6:01 pm on April 4, 1968.
