April 4, 1968 is a tragic day in our country’s history. It marks the day that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated in Memphis, TN.

Bassist/composer Marcus Shelby, whose family is from Memphis, TN, pays tribute to Dr. King on April 4 with 4 new videos featuring music from Shelby’s widely acclaimed CD “Soul of the Movement: Meditations on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

This is a very personal project for Shelby, who had several family members in the “I Am A Man” march and several who were arrested in the struggles. —Ann Braithwaite
