MLK50: Gospel Reflections from the Mountaintop

“Something is happening in Memphis, Something is happening in our world,”

Martin Luther King, Jr., April 3, 1965

Those were some of the first words the late Dr. King recited in his famous Mountaintop speech delivered the night before he was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee, 50 years ago. “Trouble is in the land; confusion all around. That’s a strange statement. But I know, somehow, that only when it is dark enough can you see the stars.”

Today, Dr. King’s words are echoed in a new video by the National Civil Rights Museum bringing his message to a new generation of Americans exploring what his words meant then and what they mean now.
