Memphis Tennessee | Martin Luther King was shot here in 1968 | I was only 2 years old. Strangely, I remember the panic visiting my aunt and uncle. We were advised to stay in and away from windows. Being an adult, I look back into this memory with sadness. What a great man. ~Ā~

Born a slave in Raleigh, North Carolina, when she earned her PhD in history from the University of Paris-Sorbonne in 1924, Dr. Cooper became the fourth African-American woman to earn a doctoral degree.
