News report of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. from WTOP-TV(CBS) Washington D.C. by Julian Barber. There is an NBC News bulletin and special report with further details including news of King's death. An ABC bulletin is heard interrupting regular broadcasting, announcing the tragic death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Joined in progress, late reports from Dan Rather on a CBS News Special Report. In a previous speech King is heard, reminding his followers that to put one's life on the line for what is just and righteous is to place oneself in danger, but the risks must be taken. Another CBS News Special report is telecast. Walter Cronkite relays the latest news from Memphis, Tennessee where King was pronounced dead one hour after he was shot. Cronkite recounts a brief biographic report on King; his early life, his rise to fame, and the influences he has had promoting non-violent activites. Wires are read from shocked dignitaries. President Lyndon B. Johnson speaks live to the American people requesting all Americans to work together for peace and solidarity. Via video tape, Vice President Hubert Humphrey reflects on this tragedy and gives praise to the work which King has done and to his non-violent philosophy for acquiring freedom and civil rights for all people. On the following day, April 5, Dan Rather reports concerning the looting which has occured. CBS Evening News with Walter Cronkite reports on the state of emergency in Washington D.C. where racial violence has broken out. Steve Rowan reports. A national day of mourning is reported by Dan Rather. President Johnson again talks to the American people requesting unity. Additional reports from Memphis come from Ike Pappas and from Bill Plante. Prayers from Dr. Ralph Abernathy are heard. From Atlanta, a report detailing the return of King's body to Georgia. Peter Burns reports on funeral arrangements. From Cleveland, John Hart reports; we hear statements from Senator Robert F. Kennedy and Carl Stokes. From the Huntley Brinkley Report (NBC), Chet Huntley and David Brinkley inform on the latest development regarding violence in many states including Detroit, Greensboro, and Chicago.
