“The Rev. Ralph W. Abernathy, perhaps Dr. King’s closest friend, was just about to come out of the motel room when the sudden loud noise burst out. Dr. King toppled to the concrete second-floor walkway. Blood gushed from the right jaw and neck area. His necktie had been ripped off by the blast.” An emergency surgery failed to save Dr. King’s life. He was declared dead about an hour after being shot.

it was 45 years ago, today.
