Today marks only 50 years since the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. at the Lorraine hotel in Memphis, Tennessee. In her first network television interview, A then-college junior, Clara Ester was standing on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee and rushed to Martin Luther King Junior’s side when he was shot.
