Starting off as an uneventful day in Memphis.

Forty-four years ago today, on April 4, 1968, the news traveled quickly regarding the shooting death of Dr. Martin Luther King in Memphis, Tennessee.

As a reminder of how the day went, here is a special News broadcast as presented by NBC Radio shortly after Dr. King had been pronounced dead.
