MLK’s Mother Was Brutally Assassinated Too…Details On Why Many Don’t Know About It
It’s been 45 years since Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s beautiful mother, Alberta Williams King, was assassinated. Yet, the murder of the the woman who birthed the man largely responsible for changing America, still goes largely unnoticed by mainstream America.
One reason Alberta King’s murder isn’t widely known, could be a reflection of the life she led. Her son, Martin Luther King, Jr. said his Mother was always by his side throughout his civil rights fight, “behind the scene, setting forth those motherly cares, the lack of which leaves a missing link in life.” Reverend L.V. Booth stated she “sounded no trumpets to call attention to her greatness.” Her legacy was overshadowed by the powerful men in her life, but Mrs. King didn’t mind. However, the other reason for her largely unnoticed murder could be because her it seemed hella suspect.
