MLK Funeral

The funeral of Martin Luther King, Jr. was held at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta. Around 100,000 people came for the service, though the church would only hold 800. After the funeral, a mule-drawn wagon carried King’s body through Atlanta’s streets to Morehouse College followed by up to 200,000 mourners.
