The King Conspiracy

This April 4th will mark the 48th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination. At the conclusion of the civil trial, Coretta Scott King, et al. versus Loyd Jowers, et al., a jury of 12 found that Jowers and others, including “governmental agencies,” were guilty of conspiracy to murder King.

In her post-judgment statement, Coretta Scott King said, “There is abundant evidence of a major high-level conspiracy in the assassination of my husband, Martin Luther King, Jr.”

I encourage other pacifists to share with others the details of the King family trial this April 4. In so doing, we will honor King, honor his family, dispel the slander of James Earl Ray, and honor the witnesses who took great risk in submitting their testimonies.
