The Impact of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King’s Assassination on Seattle

Aaron and Elmer Dixon were both detained on the day of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King’s assassination in 1968.  They watched the cities burning after Dr. King’s death.  Not long after this event, the Dixon brothers went to the Bay Area where they met leaders of the Black Panther Party.  Listen in on how the death of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King not only rocked the country, but Seattle’s Central District youth.
