Former AG Cody Remembers MLK’s Last Days

Mike Cody was a young civil rights lawyer when he received a call on April 3, 1968, that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. needed help fighting a federal injunction against marching for the rights of sanitation workers. Cody and other attorneys met with King in the Lorraine Motel the night before his assassination. On the 45th anniversary of King’s death, the Huffington Post yesterday featured the veteran Burch Porter & Johnson attorney’s story of upholding the legacy and dream King left behind.
