Tavis Smiley – Week Fourteen 2014

Tavis smileyFriday, April 11 – Friday, April 18: National Civil Rights Museum Forum  On April 4, 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was killed by a shot from a high-powered rifle while standing on the second-floor balcony of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, TN. The Lorraine is now the site of the National Civil Rights Museum, which recently completed a $28 million renovation. Last week, on the 46th anniversary of Dr. King’s assassination, a group of renowned civil rights lawyers, scholars and activists gathered to celebrate the museum’s reopening with a forum on the signing 50 years ago of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This week, we broadcast excerpts from three panels moderated by Tavis.
