On the evening of April 4, 1968, King was fatally shot while standing on
the balcony of a motel in Memphis, where he had traveled to support a 
sanitation workers’ strike. In the wake of his death, a wave of riots
swept major cities across the country, while President Johnson declared a
national day of mourning
