King Files- Released from Shelby County, TN


For those who were unaware, yesterday, April 4, 2006 marked 38 years since the assassination of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. While reading this article on I learned that in honor of Dr. King, the Shelby County, TN Register’s Office launched a website that allows viewers to see most of the public records surrounding the assassination of King.

The website allows you to look at crime scene photos, listen to different audio files, view court records, and many other things surrounding the King Assassination.

I encourage you all to check it out…

  1. I love King. Lawd knows I do. But why do you think it is that he gets more honor and respect than other leaders. Most people can not name 10 civil rights leaders.

  2. Maybe it’s the media hype. People loved him because he wasn’t the “typical black person” of the time. His words spoke to your soul- and even the most extreme segregationists and racists had to admit his brilliance. I dunno…

    MLK, Joseph Lowery, Fannie Lou Hamer, Ella Baker, Ralph Abernathy, Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, Rosa Parks, Floyd McKissick, Daisy Bates, Thurgood Marshall, Charles Hamilton Houston…

    there’s some civil rights leaders for you.
