I just got "LIFE" literally!! LIFE Magazine presents never before published pictures of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
From LIFE: On April 4, 1968, LIFE photographer Henry Groskinsky and writer Mike Silva, on assignment in Alabama, learned that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., had been shot at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis. They raced to the scene and there, incredibly, had unfettered access to the hotel grounds, Dr. King's room, and the surrounding area. For reasons that have been lost in the intervening years, the photographs taken that night and the next day were never published. Until now.

Sidebar: Is it just me or does it seem like MLK is getting a grip of attention lately. It's like they can't let our President Barack Obama get his own shine. You rarely see a picture without their two images. I mean don't get me wrong I'm proud of what Dr. King did for us as black people and this nation; and if it wasn't for him Obama will not be able to be where he is today, but d*mn can the man get some of his own lime light?? I'm just saying!!
