happy 50th birthday to my brother david

1968: march 28

Martin Luther King Jr. helped lead a march in support of striking sanitation workers in Memphis on this date 40 years ago. The march turned violent when some marchers began breaking windows with their picket signs. Police response followed, leaving one teenager dead. Dr. King pledged to return to Memphis to lead a non-violent march. He would return in six days.
