April 4, 2018 marks 50 years since the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., a tragedy that reverberated across the globe and transformed the fight for civil rights in the United States. Comcast NBCUniversal is honoring this historic milestone by serving as the Media and Technology Sponsor for the National Civil Rights Museum's "MLK50 Commemoration," and is proud to bring you this livestream.
The National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis is one of the nation’s premier heritage and cultural museums, and is located at the former Lorraine Motel, where King’s life was taken while standing on a second-floor balcony. Throughout the day, Comcast NBCUniversal’s livestream provides you – and viewers around the world – with front-row access to the museum’s lineup of speakers, performances and tributes from civil rights leaders.
Live coverage kicks off April 4 at 10:30 a.m. ET on this page and on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, culminating in a dramatic bell toll at 7:01 p.m. ET, the approximate moment of King’s assassination. Join the conversation using #MLK50NCRM.
