James Earl Ray knelt in this rooming house bathtub in Memphis and pushed his rifle through the narrow, uneven opening of this partially raised window and shot Martin Luther King through the neck on the terrace outside his room at the Lorraine Motel. I visited the #nationalcivilrightsmuseum on a day after angry protests in Charlotte and a week after a death in Tulsa. 48 years after Dr. Kings death, Black men are still targets. I naively thought we were past that. #blacklivesmatter
