The Wreath On The Balcony

Lorraine Hotel-Memphis Tennessee-National Civil Rights Museum

Today as we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King’s life, Lorraine’s motel’s second-floor balcony is one of our unforgettable memories.

Dr. King was assassinated on the balcony in front of room number 306. . The wreath is placed in the exact spot where he stood. The year was 1968.

Today, the motel has been added to and is the National Civil Rights Museum. Several nearby buildings are also part of this historical site.
