Rev. Michael Clark served as the media liaison for the family of Dr. King, Jr., during the historic 1999 civil trial in Memphis TN. Having come to believe that James Earl Ray was not the assassin of Dr. King, the family brought a wrongful death action against Loyd Jowers, accusing him and others of conspiring to murder King. The jury found Jowers liable and concluded that a conspiracy, involving government agents at various levels, resulted in King’s death. Rev. Clark worked with the media during the trial and was present in the courtroom as some 70 witnesses testified for the plaintiffs. Clark has been a student of the case for more than 30 years. It is his conviction that the reasons King was killed and the forces responsible for his death have continuing relevance for our current struggles for social change. MLK was assassinated April 4, 1968 or “36 Years Ago Today”.
