Samuel Billy Kyles, a friend of King's and an organizer of the pilgrimage. Kyles was present when a single rifle slug struck King, ripping into his face and neck, as he stood on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel. The site was transformed seven years ago into the National Civil Rights Museum. "The climate for his assassination was right in Memphis, no question about that," Kyles said. "But the climate was right in many cities in the nation ... I do think it was a quirk of history that it happened here." But it did happen here, and this city, for blacks and whites alike, has never been the same. Charles Crawford, a specialist in Tennessee history at the University of Memphis, said the shock of King's death made it clear that traditional patterns of white paternalism had to change. "It was sort of a watershed that broke the Old South pattern of Memphis and began to bring I'm not sure the proper word is cooperation but a biracial approach to solving the city's problems," Crawford said. Larry Moore, a University of Memphis business professor, said guilt over the assassination has weighed heavily on the city's black residents because King died while trying to help them. Memphis will always be remembered as the city were King died, but that can be a badge of honor, not just a scar, said W.W. Herenton, the city's first elected black mayor. TJte Associated Press I MEMPHIS. Tenn. Just a lOcents-an-hour raise. That's all it took, finally, to settle a strike by black sanitation workers three decades ago. In reality, though, the cost was too high to calculate. Zl The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr; had come to town to support the strikers, but in the flash of a rifle shot he lay mortally wounded. And from that day, April 4, 1968, Memphis would forever carry the burden of a martyr's death. : I "This was a typical Southern city. Whether we realized it or not, our eyes were closed to what is now considered to be grave injustices," said Nicholas Vieron, one of a group of local clergymen who tried to settle the strike. , The eyes were opened but at a terrible cost. In the four months before King's death, the sanitation workers' strike had led to black boycotts of downtown businesses and set off a near riot that brought the National Guard to town. Protesters, many carrying the now famous signs "I Am A Man," were beaten or gassed by police as the city's white leaders stubbornly refused their demands. ; Just 12 days after the assassination, the city ended the strike by recognizing the union and granting the dime-an-hour raise. For the anniversary of King's death, many will join a "Pilgrimage to Memphis," a celebration of King's life and the accomplishments of the civil-rights movement.
