    I don't recall seeing video of Dr. King's assassination. It happened on his hotel balcony and people didn't just carry video cameras with them everywhere like they do now. I don't think that there is live footage like there was of the Kennedy assassination.

    I returned to my desk from lunch, and a draftsman with a rather sick sense of humor said the President had been shot. After telling him that was pretty grotesque even for him he insisted it was true, so I called a special phone line the AP maintained for verifying news. A woman answered, and all she said was "It's true. He's dead." and hung up. It upset me, although I had not voted for him, since my job was a direct result of his creating the Apollo Project. My mother was in the State Dept in Iran, and was very involved in diplomatic fallout. The place was totally upset and basically closed down for a couple days. I think of it every time Caroline is in the news or some event occurs which ties in. Of course it was a conspiracy. I did not know about MLK's death until the next morning. I feared the whole nation would explode in a civil war My mother ignored it We had demonstrations and sit ins Occasionally think of it If you can call an executive action by the FBI a conspiracy, yes

    well here are some places i think may be of help to you , your local library may have it , or or may have the tape available they had a documentary on about MLK so it would show the marches and also rare footage of him preaching in church befor the assasination . As well as interviews with friends, and family and those who marched in the marches with him, hope this helps. Happy MLK day to you

    King got whacked at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis.....The Commercial Appeal is the newspaper there and they would have still shots...remember this went down back in '68...not exactly the information superhighway back then and no news crews with running cameras hanging around "the 'hood" in those days...and read James Earl Ray's book and see if you think he did it or did J Edgar Hoover have King whacked?

    Go to your nearest college library and ask to view the videos that they may have. I done this once while doing a research paper on the hollocaust.
