Martin Luther King's connection to Memphis deeper than just his assassination
Otis Sanford, Columnist

... Few if any current residents know that King made at least two other well-publicized — and only slightly less controversial — visits to the city several years earlier.

Martin Luther King Jr. met Malcolm X just once. The photo still haunts us with what was lost.

By DeNeen L. Brown

... King was stepping out of a news conference, when Malcolm X, dressed in an elegant black overcoat and wearing his signature horn-rimmed glasses, greeted him.

“Well, Malcolm, good to see you,” King said
“Good to see you,” Malcolm X replied

Cameras clicked as the two men walked down the Senate hall together ...
