The Kennedy King Memorial Initiative has big plans for a recent $100,000 grant: create and fill a new museum, and create and foster a new culture in Indianapolis.
April 4, 1968 will forever be remembered as the day civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in Memphis. Senator Robert F. Kennedy was charged with delivering the news and a speech to a crowd right in the heart of Indianapolis that evening.
Hundreds gathered Wednesday in Kennedy King Park for the 50th commemoration of the assassination of the great Martin Luther King Jr. in Memphis, Tennessee, and a subsequent speech in Indianapolis by Sen. Robert F. Kennedy that had a peaceful, moving effect on the stunned audience.
Robert Kennedy gave a speech in Indianapolis 50 years ago Wednesday.
Indianapolis is preparing to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with a series of special presentations at the famed Kennedy-King Park on the near west side.
The plaque marks the spot where Robert Kennedy told a crowd that Martin Luther King Jr. had been shot.
If approved, the designation will increase the visibility of the memorial and provide the park with certain protections.
