While many will be with us in Memphis, Tennessee on April 4 to help us reflect on this solemn moment, we want the nation to recognize this seminal anniversary and connect the past to the present.
We are asking you to join us in tolling your church or campus bell 39 times to honor the number of years Dr. King dwelled on this earth and to pay homage to his legacy. This is a simple, yet meaningful way for our nation to acknowledge the loss but more importantly the great contributions Dr. King gave to the world stage.
Since the news rippled across the country, the bells will first ring at the National Civil Rights Museum at 6:01 p.m. CST. Bells will chime in the City of Memphis at 6:03 p.m. CST, 6:05 p.m. CST nationally and 6:07 p.m. CST internationally. Please join us in this solemn reflection.
If you have questions, contact Tarrin McGhee at email@example.com or Carmen Coya at firstname.lastname@example.org.
