Martin Luther King Jr. Day


During these unsettling times, it is important to remember and celebrate the importance of
Dr. King, both the man and his message.

The National Civil Rights Museum is housed at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee. On the fateful evening of April 4, 1968, Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated by James Earl Ray while he relaxed with friends on the balcony outside of room 306. For this series of photographs I was interested in exploring the visitor’s experience outside the museum when they first arrived, and the power of the historical visual elements that greeted them before they entered the building.
