    Now a National Civil Rights Monument, and best-known as the site where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated, the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee hosted not only civil rights leaders, but a range of famous musicians and black celebrities during its heyday. In our final episode, we learn about the motel’s owners, Walter and Loree Bailey, the efforts to preserve it as a national monument, and its complicated legacy as a symbol of both Black excellence and immense sadness.
