You will also want to introduce the reader to Martin Luther King, Jr. Most people know who he is but you will want to write about what he stood and fought for. Introduce the reader to the time period and what was happening in the United States with civil rights.
This is where you can discuss his assassination. Describe to the reader what the day was like, who was present, and what he was speaking about. You can explain how he was brutally assassinated in front of so many people. Include dates and times.
