The King Center is remembering the 47th Anniversary of the Assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on Saturday April 4, by calling for a moratorium on all forms of violence, with No Shots Fired. On that day, we are asking that people abstain from shots fired by: 1. Tongue – speech; 2. Fists and physical violence; and 3. Guns – gun violence and media glorification of gun violence (and all forms of violence).
We will also remember the assassination of Dr. King by convening a forum, A Moratorium on Violence: It Starts with Me! on Saturday April 4, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. in The Center’s Freedom Hall Auditorium. The forum will include thought-provoking videos and a facilitated, interactive discussion with diverse participants addressing our Right(s)versus our Responsibility to the Beloved Community. Rights that we will be discussed include: A Right to Protest, A Right to Freedom of Speech, A Right to Bear Arms, A Right to Profit and A Duty to Serve and Protect in the case of law enforcement.
A Moratorium on Violence: It Starts with Me is free and open to the public. Please plan to join us and extend this invitation, with attached flyer, to others, as well.
Following the forum, at 4:00 p.m., Our CEO, Bernice A. King, other members of the King family, along with representatives of the National Park Service, will participate in a silent wreath-laying ceremony at the crypt of Dr. King and Mrs. Coretta Scott King.
