The Washington, D.C., riots of April 4–8, 1968, resulted in Washington, along with Chicago and Baltimore, receiving the heaviest impact of the 110 cities to see unrest following the King assassination. The ready availability of jobs in the growing federal government attracted many to Washington in the 1960s, and middle class African-American neighborhoods prospered. Despite the end of legally mandated racial segregation, the historic neighborhoods of Shaw, the H Street Northeast corridor, and Columbia Heights, centered at the intersection of 14th and U Streets Northwest, remained the centers of African-American commercial life in the city. As word of King's murder by James Earl Ray in Memphis spread on the evening of Thursday, April 4, crowds began to gather at 14th and U. Stokely Carmic...
Just after 6 p.m. on April 4, 1968, Martin Luther King Jr. is fatally shot while standing on the balcony outside his second-story room at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee. The civil rights leader was in Memphis to support a sanitation workers’ strike and was on his way to dinner when a bullet struck him in the jaw and severed his spinal cord. King was pronounced dead after his arrival at a Memphis hospital. He was 39 years old. In the months before his assassination, Martin Luther King became increasingly concerned with the problem of economic inequality in America. He organized a Poor People’s Campaign to focus on the issue, including an interracial poor people’s march on Washington, and in March 1968 traveled to Memphis in support of poorly treated African-American sanitation wo...

http://www.historypod.net On the 4th April 1968, Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee at the age of 39. The previous day he had delivered his final public speech, known as the “I’ve Been To The Mountaintop” address, in which he made direct reference the many threats against his life. King was standing on the balcony outside his room at the Lorrain Motel in Memphis when he was hit by a single bullet that shattered his jaw and several vertebrae. Despite being rushed to St. Joseph’s Hospital where doctors worked to keep him alive, he was pronounced dead at 7.05pm. Two months after the assassination an escaped convict called James Earl Ray was arrested at Heathrow Airport in the UK and extradited back to America for trial. Ray confessed to the...
(From last.fm) Young Flowers existed less than 3 years, but more than 30 years afterwards it is a group that is remember with much veneration, when and if they can remember the six-ties. Young Flowers was the first example of a Danish 'super group' inspired mostly by the sound of the British trio Cream. Bass player, vocalist (and spokesman) Peter Ingemann was a jazz renegade, who had played with a vast number of musicians in that area. Drummer ken gudman had played with a vast number of rock bands since his early teens, e.g. The Defenders, and 'the quiet one' Peer Frost had been a sideman to the great singer Peter Belli and the international hitmaker Sir Henry, which gave his innovative guitar playing some restrictions. In this context it flowered as much as the stage outfit. Not that Yo...

From the BBC Archive 'Tomorrow's World' collection: http://www.bbc.co.uk/archive/tomorrowsworld/index.shtml Showcasing the artificial garden of tomorrow. Here's a solution for anyone who dreams of having their own garden but doesn't fancy the hassle of pruning, weeding and repotting. James Burke (pictured above) explores an artificial garden that contains synthetic grass and plants made from polypropylene. Instead of fly spray, how about a polish? Forget the lawn-mower, just get out the vacuum cleaner to keep the plastic grass neat and tidy.

They say the sky used to be blue I don't quite believe it
It's probably always been the color that it is
And there were cotton candy clouds and birds to fly through it
Just stories we all love to tell our kids
So I'll close my electronic door and keep the cold outside
Hug my aluminium pillow so tight
And pray the radiation doesn't make me sick tonight
There used to be a wind wasn't caused by fans
I wonder how it would of felt in my hair
And the nuclear ring around the moon was caused by man
If it was then it's much to late to care
So I'll put my saftey goggles and gaze out at the sun
The artificial atmosphere machines give off a constant hum
In a world thats cold and peaceful April 2031
No more sky and no more trees
No more oxygen to breathe
No more hate and no more war
Nothing left worth fighting for 2031
As far back as Vietnam we should of learned our lesson
But we closed our eyes and sent our son's away
And they told us we were winning as they sold more ammunition
Some were angry most just looked the other way
Ohh, nights illuminated by the endless glowing sand
That swallowed all the oceans and choked off all the land
In a world beyond resuscitation even by God's hand
No more moutains no more sea
No more you and no more me
No more music no more songs
No God left to blame it on
No more children playing April 2031
No more need for praying April 2031
No more children playing April 2031
