RARELY in American memory had hope and horror been so poignantly fused men’s within a single week.
Even as that hope blossomed, an older blight on the American conscience burst through with the capriciousness of a spring freeze.
Great streamers of acrid smoke, drifting from blazing shops in Washington‘s commercial center, twisted among the cherry blossoms near the Lincoln Memorial, where five years earlier Martin Luther King had proclaimed his vision of black and white harmony.
In the climate of sorrow and guilt that engulfed most Americans, there was an opening for an accommodation between the races that might otherwise never have presented itself. In causation and execution, the murder of Martin Luther King was both a symbol and a symptom of the nation’s racial malaise.
Paradoxically, when a Negro riot ensued during his first Memphis march a fortnight ago, and Loeb (along with Tennessee Governor Buford Ellington) responded with state troopers and National Guardsmen, King felt that his nonviolent philosophy had been besmirched and wanted to withdraw.
The Eastern Airlines jet that carried King from Atlanta to Memphis was delayed 15 minutes before takeoff while crewmen checked its baggage for bombs that anonymous callers had warned were aboard. Back at the Lorraine, King and his aides were finishing a long, hot day of tactical planning for the next week’s march—one that would be carried out in defiance of a federal district court injunction. His aides tenderly laid towels over the gaping wound; some 30 hard-hatted Memphis police swiftly converged on the motel in response to the shot.
If the murder of Martin Luther King is not to further polarize the racism, both black and white—decried only last month by the President’s riot commission—the nation will have to accept the need for new programs, new laws and new attitudes toward the Negro. A friend of mine recently sent this sequence of pictures to friends and family to share the news of her second child’s gender. In celebrity gossip, US Weekly recently reported that Guiliana and Bill Rancic hosted their own Gender Reveal Party, and on Father’s Day, they decided to share their secret with the rest of us. Sabrina is a mom of two girls, Dylan (7) and Charlotte (5), and an energetic toddler boy, Harrison (3). I made special cupcakes and piped the approriate color into the center after our ultra sound. A couple I know announced to friends and family on the 4th of July by starting their fireworks show with several smoke bombs- pink for a girl. My husband and I like to find out at the appointment then for baby 1, I filled cupcakes with blue frosting and we had our families over to bite into them at the same time.

In Memphis, through the budding branches of trees surrounding a tawdry rooming house, a white sniper’s bullet cut down Dr. In the aftermath of King’s murder, Lyndon Johnson canceled his plans to fly to Hawaii for consultations with his military and diplomatic advisers on the delicate question of Viet Nam negotiations.


Fires crackled three blocks from the White House, and from the air the capital looked like a bombed city. Swift action by civil authorities, as in Michigan, where Governor George Romney called up 9,000 National Guardsmen and Detroit’s Mayor Jerome Cavanagh clamped down a dusk-to-dawn curfew, and restraint by police in direct confrontations, kept the lid on most communities. The proximate cause of his death was, ironically, a minor labor dispute in a Southern backwater: the two-month-old strike of 1,300 predominantly Negro garbage collectors in the decaying Mississippi river town of Memphis. Only at the urging of his aides in the Southern Christian Leadership Conference did he consent to return. That was nothing particularly unusual for a man whose life had been threatened so often, but when King arrived in Memphis he met a different challenge.
Across Mulberry Street from the Lorraine, on a slight rise, stands a nameless rooming house adorned only with a metal awning whose red, green and yellow stripes shade an equally nameless clientele. In the course of the conference, King had assured his colleagues that, despite death threats, he was not afraid. The flurry of Negro outrage that followed the murder in Memphis was conducted mostly by high-spirited youths—and was more than compensated for in solemn grief.
In Memphis, before it was carried south toward home, King’s body lay in state at the R. Many parents decide to wait until the baby is born to find out, but for those who like to know in advance, how did you reveal your baby’s gender with friends and family? They brought two loveys to the ultrasound room, a pink one and a blue one, along with a big envelope. When she isn’t carpooling or cleaning up after the kids, she loves to entertain friends and family and enjoys nothing more than cooking with a glass of wine in hand. We met our parents for dinner and shared the cupcakes with them, and also invited friends and family to stop by casually throughout the evening to find out the gender for themselves. President Johnson’s announce ment of a major peace offensive in Asia, coupled with his renunciation of another term, raised anticipation throughout the world that the long agony of Viet Nam might soon be ended. Martin Luther King Jr., pre-eminent voice of the just aspirations and long-suffering patience of black America. Yet each in his manner of departure achieved a stature that neither had ever previously attained.
The plight of the sanitation workers, caused by the refusal of Memphis’ intransigent white Mayor Henry Loeb to meet their modest wage and compensation demands, first attracted and finally eradicated Dr.
Some newspapers had emphasized during the previous week that the prophet of the poor had been staying at the luxurious Rivermont, a Holiday Inn hostelry on the Mississippi’s east bank, which charges $29 a night for a suite. Into that dwelling—actually two buildings, one for whites, the other for Negroes, and connected by a dank, umbilical hallway—walked a young, dark-haired white man in a neat business suit.
Moribund as he entered the emergency ward, Martin Luther King Jr., 39, was pronounced dead within an hour of the shooting. How did you let your older child know if they’d be having a baby brother or a baby sister?


They asked the technician to put whichever color symbolized the baby’s gender in the envelope so they could have their older daughter open it up on Christmas morning. Take, for instance, this Vintage-Inspired Gender Reveal Party, where guests were asked upon entry to either place a yellow bow in their hair if they suspected a girl or put a fake mustache on if they felt boy vibes. Later in the party, a huge box with their initials on it was opened, and a bunch of blue balloons came flying out. In manic reaction, the plunderers went about their business in an almost carnival atmosphere.
In Harlem, gleeful mobs cavorted and Mayor John Lindsay, though unharmed as he walked among them, was powerless to halt the orgy.
Now, as in November 1963, President Johnson seems determined to strike forcefully at the consciences of all Americans in order to wrest from tragedy and trauma the will to make a better society.
To repair his image, King checked into the Negro-owned Lorraine, a nondescript, two-story cinderblock structure near Memphis’ renowned Beale Street (and conveniently close to the Claiborne Temple on Mason Street, kickoff point and terminus for the sanitation marches). His death was the twelfth major assassination and the most traumatic in the civil rights struggle since 1963. Coretta King—who only last January had undergone major surgery—and arranged a flight to Memphis. Lewis & Sons Funeral Home in an open bronze casket, the black suit tidily pressed, the wound in the throat now all but invisible. Under the Christmas tree, their two-year-old daughter discovered a pink lovey, which meant she’d be having a baby sister. At the Lorraine, King and his entourage paid $13 a night for their green-walled, rust-spotted rooms. The heavy-caliber bullet smashed through King’s neck, exploded against his lower right jaw, severing his spinal cord and slamming him away from the rail, up against the wall, with hands drawn tautly toward his head. At the Atlanta terminal, Allen received word that King had died at the hospital, and he broke the news to the widow in the foyer of the ladies’ rest room. Plus, I do some freelance blogging for Land O’Lakes, so that was also the way that I got to share the news with our readers! Yet when he agreed to continue the Memphis struggle, it was under threat of both death and dishonor.
The man, who called himself John Willard, carefully chose Room 5, with a view of the Lorraine, and paid his $8.50 for the week with a crisp $20 bill—another rarity that stuck in Mrs. Then he walked out of Room 306 onto the second-floor balcony of the Lorraine to take the evening air.
Leaning casually on the green iron railing he chatted with his co-workers readying his Cadillac sedan in the dusk below.
