Fighting Segregation in Memphis

Rev. Samuel "Billy" Kyles

Rev. Samuel “Billy” Kyles was in the hospital and missed the March on Washington. Upon his recovery, he jumped back in to the Civil Rights Movement and fought for integration in Memphis. He recalls April 3, 1968, the night of the famous “Mountaintop” speech, “We had no way of knowing, no way under the sun that that would be the last speech he’d ever make.”
