Civil Rights and Martin Luther King

We went to the Lorainne Hotel where Martin Luther King was murdered.  They have turned the hotel into a museum.  The actual hotel room where King and a few friends stayed are untouched and remain as they did the day Martin Luther King was killed. Cigerettes still in the ash tray.  The museum is all about Civil rights.  It was a very interesting to walk through.  There was a needlepoint exhibit done by a women named Leanna L. Lesley.  DSC_0087DSC_0089DSC_0116 DSC_0105 DSC_0111 DSC_011311377166_970080403023777_976764381284780665_nBillie Holiday chair
