MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. MEMORIAL CITY

Whereas Martin Luther King, Jr. was murdered in Memphis, Tennessee on April 4, 1968…

 Whereas no appropriate monument dedicated to this architect of a better United States of America is currently erect in Memphis, Tennessee…

 Whereas Memphis, Tennessee is predominantly populated by people of color, yet there is not one definitive niche of commerce in the city that is controlled by them…

 Whereas Memphis, Tennessee is the home of the National Civil Rights Museum at The Lorraine Motel…

 Whereas all Memphians aspire to be worthy of Dr. King’s great sacrifice, and to live up to Dr. King’s ideals and principles…

 Whereas the city of Memphis, Tennessee epitomizes the esthetic beauty of the American South…

It is hereby resolved, this day, February 22, 2012, by the OCCUPYBLACKCAUCUS, that the City of Memphis, Tennessee is the Official Monument to the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

From this day forward, when you enter the city limits of Memphis, Tennessee, you enter the Official Monument to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

When you leave the city limits of Memphis, Tennessee, you leave the official monument to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

If you live in Memphis, Tennessee, you live within the Monument to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

When you walk the streets of Memphis, Tennessee, you walk upon the Monument to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

When you talk, laugh, or cry in this city, you do it as part of the living monument to the King. Let us conduct ourselves accordingly.
