Martin Luther king btn

 Fact; On august 28 1963 martin luther king jr gave a live changing speech about equality and for civil and economic rights for african americans, 100s of thousands of people came to watch this speech. It was life changing and as little as a year later congress Paased the civil rights bill that ended segregartion of couloured americans and banned discrimination in the work place. But devastatingly on  April 9 1978 Martin Luther king was shot at a hotel in Tennessee. Currently there is a memorial at that site.

 

 

Question;My two questions are ,  who shot Martin Luther king and why, and what was the name of the hotel he was shot at.

 

Understanding;  I know understand Martin Luther king was a very influential person for his time and that he changed the way African Americans were looked at.
