The Truth about the MLK Assassination


In 1999, Martin Luther King’s family and attorney won civil trial “King Family vs Jowers,” which found US government agencies guilty in the wrongful death of Martin Luther King, Jr..  The jury decided it did not believe that James Earl Ray, who was convicted of the crime, killed Dr. King, and that King had been the victim of assassination by a conspiracy involving the Memphis police as well as federal agencies. The King family believes the government’s motivation to murder Dr. King was to prevent his plans of mobilizing a poor people’s campaign to occupy the national lawn in Washington D.C. until the economic system changed.  The evidence of government involvement includes: the attendance of US military intelligence groups and special forces sniper teams at the site of the assassination; police bodyguards and regular police protection being removed prior to the shooting; and King being relocated from a secure 1st floor room to an exposed balcony room. This historic trial was widely ignored by the media.  After the trial Coretta Scott King stated: “We have done what we can to reveal the truth, and we now urge you…to do what they can to share the revelation of this case to the widest possible audience.”

Women in Black History | Dorothy Height, 1912-2010

Dorothy Height was a civil rights and women’s rights activist focused primarily on improving the circumstances of and opportunities for African-American women.

"In 1963, Height was one of the organizers of the famed March on Washington. She stood close to Martin Luther King Jr. when he delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech. Despite her skills as a speaker and a leader, Height was not invited to talk that day. Height later wrote that the March on Washington event had been an eye-opening experience for her. Her male counterparts "were happy to include women in the human family, but there was no question as to who headed the household," she said, according to the Los Angeles Times." [source]
