A series of photographs documenting the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee as it stands today. The motel was the site of the assassination of black civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on April 4, 1968 as he was visiting the city to support a sanitation workers strike.

According to a Memphis jury’s verdict on December 8, 1999, in the wrongful death lawsuit of the King family versus Loyd Jowers “and other unknown co-conspirators,” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated by a conspiracy that included agencies of the U.S. government.
