lets start off with when he was born. THE BEST FUCKING BLACK GUY IN THE WORLD WAS BORN January 15, 1929. He was shot dead while performing with Ben Branch at room 306 at the Lorraine Motel, owned by Walter Bailey, in Memphis April 4, 1968 aged 39. Martin Luther King Jr. formed the civil rights movement with lots of other black guys. But again when he was killed sadly black people went on with there lives such as Jesse Jackson of South Carolina joined the Democratic party and ran for president. ........Sad..... R.I.P. Martin Luther King Jr.
