On April 4, 1968, fifty years ago, Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in Memphis. His speech the night before was a chlling harbinger, when he said, "I might not get there with you. But I want you to know that we as a people will get to the promised land." Join us as we remember MLK and Robert F. Kennedy's "Mindless Menace of Violence" speech in Cleveland the day after King's death. And, a documentary playing at the Cleveland International Film Festival about why Indian-Americans tend to dominate the Scripps National Spelling Bee.
